Teds ponder

Took the Teds out to the front garden yesterday after it had got dark so they could see the candles we put in the upper windows and light at 7pm each evening.

It’s a reminder, I explained to them, that Jesus is the light of the world and that we have a God who is bigger than the universe and bigger than any of our fears, walking with us.

I think they slept better after their ponder.

Keep safe everyone

Teds meet the newest recruit

Big afternoon baptism Sunday just gone where one of the local families that we have had much to do with brought their latest edition along. Olivia-Grace was quite smitten with the Teds and joined in with the service on more than one occasion – she’s like her grandmother in that respect!

It’s really great when a family, in this liberal day and age, bring their little one into church to promise to bring them up as a friend of Jesus. There is no better way to live in my opinion and it’s heartening to see others agree.

Here we have a photo of the godparents (and parents) who promised to do their bit. Let’s see if they come good on their promises eh?

The 2020 journey begins

This picture was taken at the United Churches of Pencoed New Year Service on 5th January 2020. There is Ted obviously and there is me, Rev Ian, trying to take a selfie and failing miserably. I’m wearing a turkey hat on my head as its Christmas and we are gathered together in the Pencoed Welfare Hall representing all the Christians from all the churches and chapels in the locality.

We were not many on that day but we had a really good sing song and ponder of the bible and spent some time praying to God before the obligatory buffet.

More as it happens
