        • E-news Friday  8thOctober 2021 Another week has slipped by quickly and so much has been happening.  Covid is not only still with us but making itself felt.  One of the statements made during the week is significant: only 3% of people in hospital with covid had been vaccinated.  It does point up how important it […]

        • In these COVID days it seems important to make the most of opportunities as we do not know when we will have them again. So we will be back in the church this Sunday.

        • Just when we thought that Spring was upon us, winter sneaked up behind us and let us know it hadn’t gone.  A bit like COVID– just when we think it’s nearly finished something happens to set us back.  We are certainly having to learn to live at a different pace and in a different way.  […]

        • It’s good that we have got to Level 2 – but we look forward to getting to Level 1.  Life isn’t easy for many people at the moment – but remember the restrictions are for our safety – not a punishment.  We need to be as careful as possible in what we do to keep […]

        • Greetings everyone Well, here we are again in lockdown (alert level 4) with all its uncertainties and questions.  It is disappointing that it has happened again.  But when you see what is happening in other countries we are so lucky to be living in New Zealand. I have been wondering what I could say in […]

        • It has been a very sad week for all those parents who have lost children.

        • As I write this on Friday morning I am again reminded that today is Hiroshima Day.  The first atomic bomb was dropped on that city on 6th August 1945.  The destruction was immense.  I talked about it last Sunday in the Reflection. On Monday morning Gillian Feist sent me an e-mail that contained a poem […]

        • In 1905 the philosopher/poet/novelist George Santayana wrote: “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”  How right he was – and is!  A decade later the world was to be embroiled in a war that created enormous devastation and loss of life.  World War 1 was to be the “war to […]

        • During the week I was talking (on the phone) to my cousin in Edinburgh.  She is in her mid eighties and lives alone on the top floor of a tenement.  She was talking about how difficult the last 18 months have been with all the lock-downs because of covid-19.  It has been a very lonely […]
