From the Editor – September 2023

As the nights close-in, the mornings are filled with a chilly, heavy mist and fog, the thick dew is taking longer to evaporate, and the afternoons are filled with a gentle warmth.  Summer is drawing to an end, but the joyous colours of Autumn are a gift that we now anticipate.

August was an especially busy time for us here at the Messenger; new content was posted most days, and the variety of the posts continued to deliver the good news of the Christian message.

Our visitor and viewing figures are steadily increasing.  Visitors from the UK continue to grow, and we welcome those from farther afield, whether regulars from the US, Netherlands and Austria or new visitors from Finland and Sweden. Thank you to all of you for giving us your precious time.

So, what’s in store for September?  All the regulars will be there, including the “Not the Vicar’s Letter”, from one of our retired Priests during the interregnum, an update from The Cockshutt Church Wardens, Family Fun, including Children’s activities and a report from Messy Church.  We will continue to embrace God’s creation as we post a short article about Squirrels and the Night Sky.

Christopher Jobson, will be writing about the Joyce Grave and giving insight into the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin and St. Matthew.  He will also be writing about St Michael & All Angels as part of the Welshampton Church commemorations.  Service details are published on the calendar and each Sunday we will be posting the Sunday Collect and Bible Readings for that day.

As always, there’s a lot more; why not have a good look around the site!

With our warmest wishes,

The Meres & Meadows Messenger
