Their eyes sparkle, their lips curl up- can know what God’s mind is or not. Can we fathom God’s intentions? Can we work out God’s will? The answer, of course, is no. God is so great, so beyond our way of thinking, that we can’t even come close. God is so completely “other”, quite different from anything we have ever experienced. o how do we react to God? Like the child whose whole body shakes with delight, or like some tired being that is no longer roused by anything?

We will be full of S promises to keep doing. “O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder consider all the worlds thy hand hast made…How great thou art!” Wonder produces worship. But if we have let ourselves become dulled to what God is doing in our lives then our attitude to worship will be “whatever”. We’ll come to church, listen to the scriptures and the sermons, sing the hymns and put our Sacrament of Baptism We welcome into our parish Community Edward Stuart Daniel Kelly who is baptised here today (2pm). As Catherine and Shaune Kelly give thanks to God for the gift of Edward, may he in turn bring many blessings and much happiness to them.

You may leave your unwanted/surplus spectacles in a box in the lobby of the church, and either Mark Philpot or I take the box and arrange for the spectacles to be sent to Vision Aid Overseas. This is a useful work of charity, both in helping to alleviate illnesses of the eyes and in reducing landfill, and Vision Aid is grateful for the spectacles. However, they do not want the glasses cases - nobody does. I would ask therefore that parishioners should retain the glasses cases or put them in their waste collection.
