Chaplain's Message - 27 March, 2020
23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thystaff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runnethover. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.My mother sitting on the edge of my bed on a farm in Zimbabwe... big rambling farm house with drums from the farm labourers in the distance casting fear in my 5 year old heart - one of my oldest memories! Why so vivid? She would read me Psalm 23 from the old King James Bible; none of this modern version stuff from mymum!! The words washed over me and sealed the little scary holes in my heart. I felt whole and safe and loved. I stillfeel that when I read the familiar words - a real treasure at times like this. I hope you can let them seep into your souland may you draw peace and comfort from their promise.Pastor Sarah Pollitt
