Book Sale

We recently received massive donations of good quality books, including gardening and cookery, so after the problems we had with bad weather and power failure at our last sale, we are holding an extra sale to make this new lot of books, CDs and DVDs available at our usual low prices. We will also have gramophone records. You won't get a better bargain anywhere.

All the income goes to church projects, so you are not just getting a great deal, but the church gets help as well. One of our major projects is a toilet extension for the church, and that costs a lot these days. We have to raise a lot of money before we can start on that.

Priest's Letter

from the Revd. Dr. James Currall of Scottish Episcopal Church - Dornoch, Tain & Lairg

 

Christ is Risen. He is Risen Indeed Alleluia!!

 

Just three days ago, the situation seemed hopeless, all that signified normality was suddenly turned upside down. The one on whom we relied had been take away and the future seemed pretty bleak. And then suddenly against all expectation, what might have seemed impossible has happened. The seemingly hopeless situation has been redeemed in a way that defies comprehension, that casts the world and life and death in a new light.

Of course I might be speaking from the perspective of the disciples of Jesus; as they recall what happened from Judas's kiss in the Garden of Gethsemane on a Thursday night a couple of millennia ago, until the women arrived at Jesus' tomb early on Easter morning and found the stone rolled away and the tomb empty. Then one by one the followers of Jesus came face to face with the reality of the power of God and of the Glorious Resurrection of His Son.

On the other hand, I might be speaking of things that have happened in my life in these last days or maybe things that have happened in yours. What the rocky journey of the last wee while has underlined for me again and again, is if I am prepared to trust in God and stop thinking that I should or could control my life or resolve every difficulty on my own, then against all expectation, what might have seemed impossible can happen. Seemingly hopeless situations have been redeemed in ways that defies comprehension, that cast the world and life and death in a new light. Of course that is not to say that what has happened is what I might have asked for or imagined, but then as Paul wrote to the Ephesians:

"I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen."

A joyous and peaceful Easter to you all and may you trust in God to make the unimagined a reality in your lives.

Blessings
James
