News From Rev. Gaynor Jones-Higgs.

Churches – Benefice of Llanpumsaint with Llanllawddog including St Celynin Bronwydd

It’s been a busy week at the Vicarage, mainly because I’m trying to get everything ready and organised before I go off on my summer holiday.

By the time you read this the school summer holidays will be almost over and in church we will be starting to think about celebrating harvest, but times of rest and relaxation are important. We all need down time, unpressured unhurried time to spend with our friends and / or family and for Christians to spend with our God.

In the Christian story of creation, we are told that God himself rested on the seventh day and blessed it. The ten commandments tell us to remember the sabbath day and not to work on it. Jesus also knew that time for rest and refreshment was important when his disciples were at risk of burn out he said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a lonely place, and rest for a while.” (Mark 6:31)

I find it difficult to rest. In today’s world where we are in constant communication, where the shops are open twenty-four hours a day and where we can travel easily, rest and for me worship and prayer are something I have to be disciplined about. If you see me rushing about like a headless chicken, please feel free to remind me to practice what I preach.

Thankfully I can’t get a mobile phone signal or 4G in any of our church buildings, when I enter those buildings I try to make a conscious decision to be in a “State of Sabbath”, I take that time for renewal and refreshment and refocusing.

As the holiday season ends perhaps you might consider reclaiming the Sabbath too – that doesn’t have to be on a Sunday, maybe it will just be for half an hour a week. If our activities and services or use of our buildings or church yards might help you to do that we’d love to welcome you.

Yours Rev’d Gaynor
