Vicar's Corner

VICAR'S CORNER

Two special things on my mind this week. One is the 75th anniversary of D Day, an emotional time thinking of so many lives lost. My father was a D Day veteran. Thousands died in just a few hours in the cause of freedom.  Human beings have throughout history inflicted suffering and death upon each other. In contrast I think of Pentecost, which is this Sunday, and marks God’s gift to his people, a life giving presence. the Holy Spirit of God is powerful, unchanging, loving, graceful, uniting, and eternal. How many of us welcome and invite it into our lives daily? Often misunderstood, this undeniable evidence of the reality of God gives us strength, inspiration, guidance and hope, that the world cannot take away from us. A sign of God’s presence that is evidence that the evil and foolishness of the human world is doomed to fail but God’s promises will certainly be fulfilled.  

LEAD THEFT AT GOSBERTON CHURCH: You are likely to have heard that approximately 6 tons of lead was stolen from the south side of Gosberton Parish Church in the early morning hours of Friday 18th May, and a similar quantity early Saturday 19th early morning. We believe men worked on the roof cutting lead for an hour or two each time, and a truck and a black BMW 3 series were involved. If you heard or saw anything suspicious at those times or any other time, please contact me as below or Lincolnshire Police direct on 101.
It is possible the thieves might return and so we would be very grateful if you would be vigilant and if you see or hear anything suspicious please contact the Police immediately by dialling 999.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP
