Last week James, a neighbour, helped me put up a large and heavy roller shutter door on one of my farm buildings. It took most of the day to complete as we hadn’t any instructions as to how to do it. Finally we finished and surveyed our handiwork, congratulating ourselves that we had managed to succeed in the not- too easy task.

I was reading recently about Simon the Pharisee. (Luke 7:36-49) You may know the story – Simon invites Jesus to eat with him and He accepts. Whilst ‘getting ready to eat’ a woman of dubious virtue came into the home and anoints Jesus feet with expensive perfume, having previously washed his feet with her tears and drying them with her hair. You all probably know the story.
What an amazing, diverse, colourful creation God has made. A truly incredible artist and creator!
Over the last few months the PCC and team leaders of Emmanuel church have been looking again at the vision, purpose and values we hold as a church.
Have you been at that place recently where you have a list of things to do, time is against you and you stumble at the first hurdle?

Such experience may lead our thoughts towards spiritual attack and to some degree it is.
I have really enjoyed taking time out over the summer and trying some new things. I have played 20-20, gone on a boat trip searching for dolphins, went for a ride on the rattlesnake and played golf on a links course.
