Knit & Chat for Charity
This group meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month from 10.00am to 12md to knit items for charity.
This is a fun friendly group and we welcome everyone along. If you can’t knit just come along for a chat.
At the moment we are unable to meet because of Covid restrictions but our knitters have been very busy. I have recently sent off two parcels of jumpers and hats and a few other items to Knit for Peace and we are distributing twiddlemuffs and knee blankets to local care homes when they are able to accept them. Keep up the good work ladies.
Jesus Light of the world.
As we look forward to a New Year read John Ch.1 v1-18
Also Psalm 147 v 12-20 which the following is based on.
Joy in winter
In the short dark days of winter, of stark landscapes and bitter winds, the trees stretch empty branches into grey skies.
Some days the light hardly rises and the mist never clears.
Country and city, suburb and street, look unyielding, unfriendly, and the people are buttoned up against the wind, with their grim faces and depressing days.
Who can stand before this cold?
In the psalmist’s words, God comes to melt the cold, to let the ice flow again as water, to warm the wheat into life in the wintry fields.
Come, God of life, into our wintry world.
Come like the first green shoots of winter days.
Come and unbutton even our cautious hearts, that we may stretch, waking into life once more, smile again and welcome joy, that we may praise you and bless one another
Amen. Susan Durber
