All Good Gifts around Us!

The Coffee Pot group at St Pauls had a Harvest Lunch today. Unlike most Christian festivals, there is no fixed date, but our Harvest Festival service is this Sunday. Before I lunch, Steve Bailey, our vicar, talked about the meaning of harvest and of how, despite our hard work, we are impotent to bring it to completion. We were further reminded of our dependence on God as we sang the well-known harvest hymn “All good gifts around us are sent from heaven above – so thank the Lord for all his love.”
We then tucked into a most delicious home-made mixed vegetable soup, with different crusty rolls and sandwiches. We ended with delicious desserts and tea or coffee (Plus After 8 Mints).
There were then donations and raffle tickets to help Riding for disabled children.
We have a lot to be thankful for – and our thanks go to the team who had made and provided all the food.
