A Summer of Relaxation, Laughter and Worship.

July and August are times for holidays and we do hope that everyone manages to get some quality time to relax. Not everyone can afford to go away on holiday but we are very fortunate to live in a beautiful county and July and August are a good time to enjoy living in the countryside.

Enjoying the gift of life is an important life choice. For as we all know too well, life is a fragile and delicate thing. Life has grown up in what scientists call the Goldilocks zone. This means that everything is perfect for life: the rate of oxygen in the atmosphere; the amount of fresh water; the temperature of the earth. For all this we have God to thank.

It is the same on the spiritual plane. Our relationship with God operates in near perfect conditions as the first letter of John puts it: “God’s love was revealed among us in this way: God sent his only son  into the world so that we might live through him.” (1 John 4:9)

God want us to enjoy life; to accept the challenges we face and to travel together in our journey through life, so we need to enjoy our earthly pilgrimage and to thank God constantly for life.

We also need to enjoy our worship. Our Bishop has given us special permission to laugh in church during the months of July and August. Laughter is a sign that we are enjoying being the Church and are enjoying each other’s company. A Church that does not laugh together is a church that is too serious and is heading in a downward spiral. So let’s enjoy our worship. If we enjoy church it will rub off on others and they will want to join us.

July and August are a time of relaxation and we hope that that spirit of release and freedom will imbue our churches so that we can relax and be still with God.

Combining relaxation and laughter is the perfect recipe for a summer of fun with God. Enjoy life. Enjoy God. Enjoy Church.
