Through the Year with Robin...

This time last year, while Scotland was baking under the hottest summer sun it had enjoyed in years, I found myself in the depths of winter not that Im complaining. I was in Melbourne for the International AIDS Conference and boy, oh boy! was it chilly? I was glad to have my trusty down jacket with me to zip up against the Antarctic blasts that swept northwards through Australia.

Winter in summer offers us a bit of a metaphor for life. While some people appear to have the world at their feet, going about their daily lives with a bright and sunny disposition, its always good to remember those who, even on the most beautiful of days, are weighed down with one burden or another. It may be a health issue for themselves or a loved one. It may be appalling workplace stresses. It may be concerns over family, or home life or finances. It might be plain exhaustion at the pace of modern living..

Thats where its so important to recall that every single person is different, with differing needs to be met and different wounds to be healed we all have them after all. As a community, its up to us to recognise those needs and these wounds, acknowledging that they do in fact exist, as a first step to offering practical and appropriate help of one kind or another, however simple..

Jesus said: Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and youll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I wont lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly..

The Young Church

Longniddry Church has two groups aimed at our varied age groups of young people: Sunday Club if you're between 3 - 11 and creche for anyone under 3. New members are always welcome so please just come along at the first service (9.45am) and see what we have to offer. And.... watch out for Messy Church!

We are always in need of extra helpers (and it doesn't have to be every week!!) If you would like to volunteer to help with a group, please contact Kerry Reilly (853201) or email Messy Church
