Vicarage Notes

Dear friends, 


My thanks to all who decorated the Church for Easter - as ever St. Lawrence's looked lovely! As I write we are still waiting the Annual Meeting to take place - so more news later, but sincere thanks to all the team here in Oxhill.

Special Services

Please note the slightly different pattern of services this month - we recognise that Whitsun is one of the 3 days in the year when Anglicans are specifically encouraged to receive communication - with an opportunity to do so either at Tredington or the Parish Church.

Ne’er cast a clout ‘til May be out!

I’ll still a little hazy as to what exactly a clout is – a piece of cloth or cover seems to receive most support, but…. Proverbial English is sadly disappearing along with old country customs but a good phrase is always memorable. Quite a few sayings are, of course, quotations from the Bible: “many are called but few are chosen” and “the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak” are but 2 examples.

One of my favourite quotations from St. Matthew’s Gospel ch.6 is this:

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin, and yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

We didn’t have many “April showers to bring forth May flowers” but I suspect some of our views of nature may inspire our souls and, indeed, our faith.

Finally, I know that everyone is looking forward to the Lamb and Curry lunch on May 20th – may I add my voice to ask for your support!

Best wishes and God bless,
