“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11 v 28-30

This week our prayer is for all those who have been winning battles that no one sees: battles against inner doubt and lack of confidence, anxiety and isolation. In a time of great change and transition from one way of being to another, count your blessings this week, notice your resilience and thank God for all good gifts around us in food, shelter, nature and caring people. And know, that you are in the thoughts and prayers of your church.
