“I am the true vine”
Exploring the meaning of ‘abiding in’ with Glyn Stanway.
Wherein Revd Elisabeth encourages us to consider freedom.
Rev Erwin reflects on loss.
My eyes are open before the nightwatches, that I may meditate on your word.
130 The opening of your word gives light, it gives understanding to the simple 131 I open my mouth and draw in my breath as I long for your commandments 132 Turn to me and be gracious to me as is your way with those who love your name
We’re very sorry that plans for guided tours of the new church interior and the new Annexe, which had been announced in July
Tidings for 11, 18 and 25 July, have had to be abandoned.
The reason is that the Annexe’s rather specialised glass is coming from Germany and its arrival has been delayed by 2-3 weeks.
Completion is now expected at the end of July.
“I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE.”
Short meditation with Glyn Stanway
And here is the official post-ordination picture taken after the service at St James’ church Clacton.
Today at St James Clacton-on-Sea, our curate Elizabeth Ring was ordained priest in a service that can be seen below.
We send our warmest congratulations to Elizabeth on this momentous occasion.
The service proper starts 19 minutes into the video which can be seen on the Facebook page of St James’ church.
A few sample shots from the video. On the right, Revd Erwin (as Training Incumbent) after the ordination re-draping Elizabeth’s stole which as a Deacon she had worn diagonally.
