Letter from Rev Debra

Smile – Jesus loves you
“Have you heard the sun singing?
Have you heard it shouting its story?”
June, for those of us who live in the northern hemisphere, is the month of the summer solstice. We celebrate the longest day – and hopefully some sunny and warmer weather. In the southern hemisphere it is of course winter.

June offers us many celebrations: for our Roman Catholic sisters and brothers it is known as “the month of the Sacred Heart”. The Sacred Heart refers to the heart of Jesus … truly something we should thank God for each day, not just in the month of June.

In the UK, this is also National Smile Month, which sounds quite cheerful but actually refers to oral health. Many people have a phobia or fear of dentists, so perhaps it is nicer to think of National Smile Month in a positive light, and smile because we know that Jesus loves us.

This is also the theme for our Flixton Family Fun Day on Saturday 6th July (further details in Latest News). You can also see in this Bulletin that there are other services and events which have a celebratory theme, so read on to find out more.

There is so much that we can be truly thankful for, both in the life of the church and in the wonderful world God created for us. “The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy,” says Psalm 126, v 3. Take the opportunity, then, this month to spread the joy to others: your friends, neighbours and family. Invite them along to our events and
services, and help make other people smile and realise that Jesus loves us all.

June is a month of sunshine … we hope … so share that sunshine with other people.

Best wishes and blessings,

Reverend Debra
