Beloved people of Christ
It is the last day of February and a positive way to turn to the new month of March – springtime, daylight saving, Covid jags, and our own spiritual awakening. What a welcome break to have a wash of brightness, sunshine and the assurance and promise of the season of Lent. I trust you are all well, strong and positive – full of hope and joy as Christians are! May you feel Christ walking along your path with you! We also trust you are enjoying the #LiveLent booklet.
Our ecumenical Sunday service, Zoom links on Tuesday and Wednesday are as before, and hope to see you on line then.
Two items this e-newsletter:
1. World Day of Prayer
From Tayport, Christine says, “This year it is the turn of St Margaret’s to host the ecumenical World Day of Prayer service on Friday 5th March on behalf of the Tayport Churches.
Due to current restrictions, this will be a Zoom service and the link is as follows:
Topic: World Day of Prayer
Time: Mar 5, 2021 02:00 PM London
Join Zoom Meeting
Meeting ID: 835 2727 2931
.” As we will be unable to take a collection towards the work of the World Day of Prayer during this service, please give any donations to Christine Barker at The Old Manse, 6 Queen Street, Tayport DD6 9NS. Christine can also deliver booklets for the service if you contact her. Any cheques for donations should be made payable to ‘WDP Scottish Committee’
We will have more news on the Newport WDP as soon as we get it, so that you can link in.
2. Monday is the Feast Day of St David, patron saint of Wales. I asked David Smith if he could recommend some music for us and here it is, so enjoy a home concert.
The first link below is to ‘Cwm Rhondda’ – Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah. (scroll right down for music and words)
Number two may not be what you want but it is a man singing about St David.
Three and four are R V Williams arrangements of the Welsh hymn tune ‘Rhosymedre’ – ‘March on, my soul, with strength’.
He arranged this piece for orchestra (3) and organ (4). It is one of my favourite pieces to play.
God bless you and keep you.
