Rector’s pastoral “ thought for the week” : Many people compare these dark days we are living through to life in the last War. Those of you who lived through WW2 at least could get together for parties! During that time the world was inspired by our very own Winston Churchill. Yet in 1945 , the crowd “ cheered Churchill — and voted Labour!”. It proves how fickle popularity can be . This Palm Sunday we remember when our Lord rode in triumph into Jerusalem, and thousands spread palm leaves before him shouting “ Hosanna” . Yet days later they were screaming for his death. The great Palm Sunday hymn “ Ride on in majesty” will be sung alone by me in St Mary’s and Greyfriars this Sunday — not a pretty sound ! — but the final verse says “ In lowly pomp ride on to die; bow Thy meek head to mortal pain, then take O God Thy power and reign” I continue to pray for each of you and families by name. PLEASE phone me for any pastoral support. Stephen
