It’s great when summer comes and regardless of the weather we all look forward to the slightly slower pace that this holiday season brings. Summer is a good time for stuff we don’t normally have time for – hanging out in the garden having a BBQ, going on trips to the sea, going overseas, relaxing with a book. As a church August is always a slower time for us and it gives us time to recharge our batteries ready for the new school year in September. Take the opportunity to reflect about your own life with God. Take time to check on your most important relationships. Summer time is a gift to us. Perhaps write some things down that you feel God is saying to you, or read through a gospel and pick up a Christian book. Why not try and go for a ‘prayer walk’ with God in the country side? What ever you do this summer, may the goodness of God touch you every day.
