PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI : PRAYER FOR PEACE   Lord, make me an instrument of your peace, Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy;  O Divine Master, grant that I may seek not so much to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.

 

READING MORE AND DUSTING LESS.  I'm reading more and dusting less. I'm sitting on the deck and admiring the view without fussing about the weeds in the garden. I'm spending more time with my family and friends and less time in committee meetings. Whenever possible, life should be a pattern of experience to savour, not endure. I'm trying to recognize these moments now and cherish them.  I'm not "saving" anything; we use our good china and crystal for every special event-such as losing a pound, getting the sink unstopped, the first camellia blossom. I wear my good top to the market if I feel like it. My theory is if I look prosperous, I can shell out money for one small bag of groceries without wincing. I'm not saving my good perfume for special parties; clerks in hardware stores and tellers in banks have noses that function as well as my party-going friends.  "Someday" and "one of these days" are losing their grip on my vocabulary. If it's worth seeing or hearing or doing, I want to see and hear and do it now.  I'm not sure what my sister would have done had she known that she wouldn't be here for the tomorrow we all take for granted. I think she would have called family members and a few close friends. She might have called a few former friends to apologize and mend fences for past squabbles. I like to think she would have gone out for a Chinese dinner, her favourite food. I'm guessing-I'll never know.  It's those little things left undone that would make me angry if I knew that my hours were limited. Angry because I put off seeing good Friends whom I was going to get in touch with-someday. Angry because I hadn't written certain letters that I intended to write-one of these days. Angry and sorry that I didn't tell my husband and daughter often enough how much I truly love them.   I'm trying very hard not to put off, hold back, or save anything that would add laughter and lustre to our lives. And every morning when I open my eyes, I tell myself that it is special. Every day, every minute, every breath truly is...a gift from God.   I don’t believe in miracles. I rely on them.   Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.  -By Anne Wells-

19th June 2016

TWELFTH  SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

 

“One night a father overheard his son pray: Dear God, Make me the kind of man my Daddy is. Later that night, the Father prayed, Dear God, Make me the kind of man my son wants me to be.

10 Ways to Make Father’s Day Special.  Tips for making meaningful moments on your dad's special day–and every day. by Michelle Cox   Spend Unhurried Time Sounds simple, but with our busy lives, it takes intentional planning to find time for unhurried eyeball-to-eyeball moments with our loved ones. If you can’t be there in person with your dad, consider doing a FaceTime or Skype call with him.  Say 'Thank You' Thank your dad for what he’s meant to you and for the sacrifices he’s made for his family. Savour Family Memories Reminisce and talk about family memories—the fun times, vacation memories, holiday stories and the sweet moments you’ve shared.  Share Your Gratitude Tell him what he’s done as a dad that impressed or touched you. Was it spending time together at church each week? Was it the nights he played ball in the yard with you after he’d worked a long day? Was it hearing his prayers for you or seeing him reading his Bible each day? What Are 5 Ways You Admire Him? Think of five qualities that you admire in your dad that you’d like to instil in your own life. Share those things with him. Read Scripture to Him Find a verse (or passage of Scripture) that you think describes your dad. Read that to him, and explain why you think it fits him.  Pray with Him Pray with and for your dad. Thank God for him and what he’s meant to you, and pray for God’s blessings on his life in the years ahead.  Work on That Bucket List Talk to your dad about his bucket list. What would he like to do if given the chance? Plan to do one (or more) of those things with him over the coming year. Throw Your Arms Around Him! Give him a big hug, and tell him how glad you are that he’s your dad.  Say 'I Love You' Out Loud Tell him you love him. Say the words. I wish I could do these with my late dad. I really miss him on these special days. If your dad is still with you, please make the moments count.  If you didn't enjoy a warm and loving relationship with your father, this is a great opportunity to determine that your own children will have memories of a dad who loved them and was part of their lives.  Honour your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you. (Exodus 20:12)

Parish Faith in Action Project – Living Simply So That Others May Simply Live 

The Parish Faith in Action Group met last Monday to complete our draft Parish Action Plan so as to enable us to submit our application to Cafod to take part in the LiveSimply Project. That application has been submitted to Cafod and we await their response.

At this point we would like to give a general view of the suggested actions in our application. We have been mindful throughout to keep the Action Plan straightforward and simple, so that everything is ‘do-able’.  The project is primarily aimed towards actions within the Parish, but we hope that many of these actions can be carried over into our home lives as well. 

 

There are 3 categories of ‘Principles of Living’, each of the 3 Principles consists of 3 specific actions (ie 9 actions in total), one of which, in each Principle, must be substantial (ie 3 substantial actions in total).  The 3 Principles are Living Simply, Living Sustainably and Living in Solidarity with the Poor.  We must provide evidence of having achieved each of our 9 actions, to qualify for the Parish Living Simply award, which will probably take around a year.  We are then expected to continue to ‘LiveSimply’ and to build on and develop what has been achieved.

 

The actions that we have submitted to CAFOD are: in the Living Simply Principle;

1)       Walking to Mass on some Sundays

2)        Organising a series of Sunday Soup Lunches in conjunction with CAFOD and perhaps inviting the homeless to join us.

3)       Continuing Tea on the Lawn.

 

 In the Living Sustainably Principle:

4)       Switching from disposable cutlery/crockery and using reusable items and switching to ECO detergents etc and making it a condition of using the Parish Hall that all users/hirers should do likewise;

5)       Saving water by introducing water butts and setting aside some flower/vegetable beds for use of parishioners in small plots around the Church.

6)       Installation of a bike rack to encourage more people to cycle to Church.

 

In the Living in Solidarity with the Poor Principle:

7)        Continuing with using the Parish Hall in Winter to provide a refuge for the homeless in which to sleep and have a meal, in partnership with the Baptists next door

8)        continuing our involvement with the Christian Kitchen and Heat and Eat;

9)       Offering financial support to a specific project to the Church in Bethlehem and China; and finally, Switching to Fair Trade products. 

 

PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI : PRAYER FOR PEACE   Lord, make me an instrument of your peace, Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy;  O Divine Master, grant that I may seek not so much to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
