Here is a daily message from
our chair of district,
Matthew 10 v40-42 (additional Matthew 25 v35-40, Psalm
verses conclude Matthew's section on mission. He stresses
to the disciples about being received as his followers
and a welcome given to them is really welcoming Jesus
and God the Father. The reward hinted at probably refers
to the end-time and the Son of Man's coming in glory.
such welcoming a cup of cold water is deemed important.
It doesn't sound too much to give (though for some it
might involve a long walk and some sacrifice) and was
within what they could do. Jesus never asks for more
than we can give.
Today Christ calls to the thirsty whose wells are dried
up or too far away, or whose water is foul and polluted.
He asks as at Jacob's well "can I have a drink
of water please?" A question that led to dramatic
and positive changes in a woman's life.

Water is precious; humans can't normally survive more
than 48hours without a drink. By giving someone a drink
we take our inheritance, the kingdom already prepared.
Symbolically, we might say that real life, beginning
here and continuing hereafter only truly begins if we
commit to Jesus for our spiritual needs to be met.....Jesus,

Often help comes from the most unexpected people; thirsty
people (whether for liquid or spiritual need) don't
care where the "water" comes from.
Let us be thankful for all that God has done and is
doing for us.
Let's give thanks for all the people who have helped
us materially and spiritually.
Let us respond to every whispered, thirsty cry for helping
always in all 3 cases with a grateful heart.
and don't waste "water".
prayer for this time provided by our
minister, Revd Michael Pullan:
this is over, may
we never again take for granted, a
handshake with friend or stranger, full
shelves at the store, conversations
with neighbours. a crowded theatre,
Friday night out,
the taste of communion. a routine
check-up the school run each
morning. coffee with friends,
the stadium roaring, each
deep breath, a boring Tuesday
When this ends may
we find that we have become more like
the people we wanted to be, were
called to be, and
may we stay that way, better
for each other because of the worst.
Welcome to our website
Neither height nor
depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to
separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
