Vicar's Corner

VICAR'S CORNER

I spent almost all the first 25 years of my life in tiny villages. Most people knew almost everyone.  There was the lady who kept the tiny post office, (whose husband milked cows by hand and was churchwarden) the church curate, the gamekeeper, tenant farmers, and the local baronet/landowner was quite approachable too. We had an oft used red phone box, and a bridle road out of the village that had few tractors and horse riders and was a good place for walks. The village hall was (and still is) a corrugated iron shed with a very early painting of the Queen! I was the local young film maker and have hours of movies of those days, now on DVD’s! Today’s villages are often roughly divided into senior citizens (who hold the fabric together in local churches and clubs etc., and by having time to stop and talk) and those who commute elsewhere for everything and only have a limited interest in the village. Neighbours still need each other, and (thank God) Christians do too. This Sunday we begin the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. We believe that we are united in our common faith and God’s love. A God who we know is present in every community, even if some aren’t aware he is! Ian

 

“ Forty Reasons to Trust the Bible" is a new book co-authored by Dr Martin Johnson, who often visits Gosberton and is known to some of you. We recommend this book (available on Amazon and from good bookshops) as a thrilling way to discover the Bible!” Click here to read more. Also available from the Vicarage at a discounted price of £10.
