Dear Friends


The secret of life is keeping the main things the main things.

This is why religion plays such a vital role.

When people forget the world is made and loved by God and heading for his glory we all lose out through thoughtless use of their lives and possessions.

That being said some people don’t believe in God for reasons he might excuse, like the experience of great evil at the hands of the ‘godly’. I wouldn’t want to judge anyone for unbelief and hold that the God and Father of Jesus will judge us all with mercy when the world ends.

What are the main things that help God become real to us?

PRAYER ‘Be still and know that I am God’ Psalm 46:10

WORSHIP ‘Gathering with the Lord’s people, on the Lord’s day in the Lord’s house around the Lord’s table’

STUDY especial of the Bible and lives of the saints 

SERVICE ‘You shall love your neighbour’ Matthew 22:39

REFLECTION including confessing your sins and periodically checking you’re keeping the main things the main things.

A happy and holy Lent


Father John
