Principal’s Blog Week 6
It’s still hard to fully comprehend the times in which we are living at the moment.
The situation changes each day and appears it will worsen before we see breakthrough.
We will, however, see that breakthrough in due course and we will once again be able to see one another face to face and enjoy the fullness of human company.
My blog this week, therefore, consists of a few simple words at this time of Easter, such an important time for Christians around the world.
When it looked to all onlookers and for all intents and purposes that Jesus was dead and buried, the bible tells us that the stone covering his tomb was majestically rolled away so that new life could enter the world!
We will need to wait for such a moment in our nation when the current tragedy has passed. When it does, I am sure we will all celebrate with joy.
Until then, I hope you are able to find some peace and some calm in your home this Easter in the midst of this particular storm.
I was sent these words by a friend from the Diocese of Sailsbury this morning and they resonated with me:
The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. (Deuteronomy 33:27)
Here is a beautiful Celtic encircling prayer from Iona. It reminds me of the prayer for protection and safety in Ephesians 6 – The Armour of God. It’s a really moving one to pray during these uncertain times.
Be near me,
With every blessing
