Dear EFP church folk,
 
Here's today’s Sunday Reflection and Prayer -
Service sheet attached.
 
After seeing the Queen yesterday go through the bleakness of a Covid funeral, today we are reminded in the resurrection narrative of the wounded Jesus coming to us in the bleakest of circumstances.
 
Today we have Communion at Escot at 9am.
 
God bless,
David

God of our lives,
