WELCOME TO THE PARISH OF SKETTY

God welcomes weeds into the garden of His church and acceptance and the addition of the Holy Spirit, plenty of love, prayer, Bible Study, protection, and continual support and nurture, weeds in God’s garden become the wonderful blossoms that draw others to them to find out what changed them.


Lent is the time to nurture the weeds that we are to enable us to blossom for God at Easter.

LAST WORDS FOR OCTOBER 2018

SUNDAY 21ST. OCTOBER 2018


THE HARVEST BASKET

As the Harvest season draws to a close and we think about the baskets of fruit offered to the Father, let’s ask ourselves,

  ‘What have I given to Him this year?’ and think of ourselves in the terms of Christen baskets which contain the spiritual fruits we have to offer.


   Outwardly, are we strong and reliable in our faith? Can our resolve to follow Jesus be easily broken? Are we a bit battered by events in our lives? Can we still hold all the fruits of the Spirit or is there a risk that they can fall away and unless we have some repairs the rest will follow?


What about the fruits of the spirit? What fruits do we contain?

  Galatians 5: 22-23 tells us what they should be:

 The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.


   It is a good discipline of Christian lives if we regularly examine ourselves to see if we are lacking in any of these fruits. A church full of Christians who cultivate these spiritual fruits becomes a true example that shows the world that we are Jesus’s disciples. ‘By our fruits’ we will be known. That greatest of these fruits is Love. If we concentrate on that first, we will find that the other fruits will grow out of it.


  Love is both the greatest spiritual gift we can receive from God and it is the most important fruit which we can produce in our lives through the Holy Spirit.

How much of a Harvest of Christianity and witness do we actually have to offer to our Heavenly Father this year? Is it the best we can offer? Are we holding back anything? Is there some part of us that we refuse to give? Perhaps we hold on to praise we have received for things we have done and achieved instead of ensuring in all things we give God the glory?

  

The harvest season is drawing to a close. What do we need to do to repair the battered baskets we all are and cultivate the fruits of the spirit with greater care so that next year we will be over-flowing? with them and that will mean more and more people can share them and give glory to God?  

  Harvest Blessings,

        Marian S. C. L.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

(the Shoebox Appeal)


Could you please consider supporting this charity again this year?  You have all given so generously in the past, and unfortunately the need for your shoeboxes filled with little delights for children is still needed.  For a child with so little, they mean so very much.  I will put a supply of leaflets at the back of the church, together with pre-printed boxes at 40p each in the next few weeks.  All completed shoeboxes must be handed in by the end of the first week in November to enable us to send them on their way, but could I ask that this year NO SWEETS OR TOOTHPASTE are included.  Many thanks everyone on behalf of the children,

for your continuing kindness.
