News from the Vicarage - May 2013

Dear Friends,

I find it hard to believe that this month sees the 300th edition of the parish magazine. I think that the magazine is important in communicating what is happening both in the church and in the community. I am grateful to our editor Margaret Lagoyianni for putting together such a good magazine with varied interests. We are also reliant on other contributors, so if you want more in our magazine please send it to Margaret! The magazine is also important in passing on the 'Good News' and encouraging our faith, especially to those in our community who do not go necessarily to church regularly. I hope you too find the articles interesting. It is about outreach and mission!

While the secular year begins with the new year on 1st January (for us the Naming and Circumcision of Jesus) the Christian year begins with Advent, which means coming, when we eagerly await the coming of Jesus, predicted by the prophets and his Second Coming as Lord and King. We light a candle in the Advent wreath for each Sunday and Christmas Day. The Christian year follows the pattern of Jesus' life.
