Last week we celebrated Harvest and took a collection for Bicester foodbank. Harvest is a time for all of us to be thankful for God’s provision in our lives and particularly to thank God for our food. It is also a time to give.

Last week our small group was looking at how Elijah prayed for rain after a three-year drought (1 Kings 18:41-46). It reminded us that someone the Bible describes as “being human just like us” (Jas.5:17 Message Version) can, when living right with God, see mighty answers to prayer.
A little time ago, while praying, I had an image of Jesus washing my feet. He looked up and asked: “What sort of leader do you want to be?”
I had such a strong sense that I wanted to be kneeling beside Jesus, loving and serving others – while at the same time knowing how poor I am at doing this.
“If enough people will do their inner work.” This soul work is the one thing that will pull us through any emergency.
I was struck by this quote from Dr.Jung recently taken from Richard Rohr’s daily meditation entitled ‘Shadow work.’
I just wanted to update you all on the cafe. I feel it's really important that you share in the encouragements, the things that God is doing, and also the struggles.
