Greetings from the manse,

 
I hope this finds you well. I read an article this week which had a phrase that seemed to capture a little of how I was feeling: 
 
"Our new normal is always feeling a little off balance, like trying to stand in a dinghy on rough seas, and not knowing when the storm will pass."
 
I wonder if you have at times felt a little off balance? When I read this quote I  immediately thought of Jesus and his disciples in a boat in a storm. The disciples full of fear and Jesus commanding peace.   
 
We continue to live in testing and challenging times but we know that Jesus is with us in the boat and we certainly need to tune into his words of peace. 
 
May you know the strong and faithful voice of Jesus speaking into your life and as ever may you know the presence of God as we worship together, here are todays links.
 
You will hear in the announcements, this morning, that we are looking for photos, please send them either via messenger on the church Facebook page or direct to my email address Lpurden@churchofscotland.org.uk
 
Here are the links to our services and we pray that God will speak to you as we digitally unite in worship.
