Phil the Gap


A New Year starts  -  and I’m looking forward to ‘Phil-ing in’ for Owen for the next four months, while he takes his very well-earned sabbatical from leading the church. One of the first things I was able do as I took hold of the reins was to visit Val, Faith and baby Eden. ‘Hey’ I thought, ‘..this pastoral lark isn’t bad. What a joy!’ And, of course, that’s what leading should mostly be full of: Joy. The writer of the book of Hebrews says that if leading becomes a burden and not a joy, it’s of 'no benefit' to the church. So - I’m hoping for lots of joy over these next few months, so that by God’s good grace I’ll be of maximum benefit to you! Happy New Year! With love, Phil.
