Today is a very sad day for everyone, and especially for the families and friends of the victims, as we learn about the act of terrorism in Manchester last night. At such times we feel angry and helpless, and maybe the words from the Psalms quoted by Nick Baines our Bishop come somewhere close to touching how we feel:
'How long must I bear pain in my soul, and have sorrow in my heart all day long' (Psalm 13.2).
We will all have our own way of trying to work through how we feel today. If it would be of help to you, All Saints' Church on Dudwell Lane will be open tonight from 6pm to 7pm for quiet prayer and reflection.
Yours in Christ,
Steve Lees (Vicar)
