Today we are in the rhythm of both gratitude and yearning. Between the two, there is great space for hope. We are learning to be a patient people, continuing on, grateful but also impatient, in hope. We don’t give up hoping just because some of the things we long for in God’s reign of peace and justice have already happened. We’re there, and yet we’re not. So much remains unfinished; so many have not yet experienced what has been promised.

Today’s readings urge us to prepare for and be open to God’s presence in our lives. We have been taught that this presence is ongoing, yet it doesn’t always seem so. We need to work to overcome fear and doubt, especially in challenging times, but the task need not be a frantic effort. These readings carry warnings and longings, but the operative words are comfort, tenderness and hope. We wait and prepare because of the promise.

The Parish Picnic on the 19th of November was very successful with at least 50 attendees including children of various ages including toddlers. The weather was wonderful: a bit breezy but warm enough to wear only a cardigan. The forecast rain stayed away. Unfortunately, the fire engine did not turn up. However, there were plenty of games and all the children joined in enthusiastically irrespective of age. There was tug of war, potato and spoon race (variation of egg and spoon), and the three legged race. I think the starting whistle was popular as was the posted games time table.
Thanks to all generous donations, all the children were able to receive a prize for participation. A big thank you also to all the attendees, volunteers, and helpers in any capacity for helping to make a very successful day. Let’s aim for more fun next year!!
