Message from Revd Roger Smith - 24th May 2020
do you do on Sunday mornings? For many of us in the past two months,
our answer to that question has changed. Churches are closed (and so
are sports pitches). So what do you do?
suppose there must be some people who find something new to do every
Sunday but I suspect most of us are settling into new patterns. This
might include joining services on radio, TV or (for those who have it)
the internet. Your
new pattern could mean more time spent in quiet reflection, reading,
walking and engaging with the natural world. Many thanks to Geoff North
for this photo of some new residents in Nunroyd Park:
hope youíre experiencing something good on Sundays. Donít waste energy
feeling guilty about anything youíre not doing! If youíve found
something good, let God speak to you through it.
Thursday was Ascension Day which can be a tricky day to properly engage
with. After the resurrection thereís a time when Jesusí visible
presence on earth has to come to an end. I have to admit that I donít
find the picture of Jesus of disappearing up into the clouds at all
helpful. There are even stained glass windows with Jesusí feet right at
But Ascension Day has a powerful
message for us, perhaps especially this year. In Lukeís version of the
story at the beginning of Acts, two men dressed in white ask the
disciples, ĎMen of Galilee, why do you stand here looking into the
sky?í The disciples must change their focus. They might have started to
Jesusí resurrection meant things going back to how they were. But no,
it means something new is happening!
the restrictions weíre living with gradually lift, everything wonít go
back to how it was. Thereís no need to be anxious about this. God has
provided good things for us in the past, is doing so now and will
continue to do so in the future, whatever shape that might take.
all this, keep on supporting one another.

From Mrs Catherine Mouncey:
I'm sorry I haven't been able to empty the majority of the boxes yet,
but will do so when I have been 'let out'.
Those of you who usually give donations and still wish to contribute can
send your cheques direct to Revd Keith Reed, made payable to Guiseley
Methodist Church. Please also phone me so that I can record the
amount and whether you Gift Aid.
As things are changing in lots of ways, perhaps box collectors could
give some thought to changing to donation giving in future.
It would make things easier for Keith & myself. We certainly need to
keep the money flowing for the work of the World Mission Fund.
