Dear friends, last month we had an unusual exercise in democracy at St Luke’s. Regular worshippers were encouraged to vote for which book of the Bible they would like to hear about during the sermons of February and March. Normally St Luke’s has Bible readings chosen for us by the Lectionary……
It is 2020 and although my eyes are not good enough to claim 2020 vision for myself, this is the year to reset our vision at St Luke’s. 2020 is the time to pray and plan for the next five or ten years.
There is a desire amongst many of the people of Holmes Chapel Parish Church to see good growth and development, while at the same time building on our traditional strengths.
I write from north-west Argentina knowing, as soon as I return, Jean and I will move to Holmes Chapel. Several months after hearing the Lord’s call to join you at St Luke’s, we are excited to start meeting everyone.
