It was a lovely treat today to find a box of muffins on the table in the Clergy Vestry - a gift from a friend. Just the right kind of thing when you're feeling "under the weather" and can't think what to look for when you go shopping. Some will find their way into the freezer and the enjoyment will extend over many days. Random acts of kindness like that make a great deal of difference in a world that is constantly rushing around mindlessly and in a society where "I/me/my/mine" frequently come first.
Thank you, friend.
O Lord, Hear the prayers of your people who call upon you; and grant that they may both perceive and know what things they ought to do, and also may have grace and power faithfully to fulfil them; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
