Let down the nets for a catch

My daily reading one day last week was from Luke’s Gospel, in which he calls the first disciples. One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, the people were crowding around him and listening to the word of God. He saw at the water’s edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets. He got into one of the boats, the one belonging…

Claire’s Baptism

It was such a joy to witness Claire Thomas’ baptism, and her evident joy in the event. Claire said in her testimony: ‘This is a big day for me, I want to show the World that I love, I trust and have put my hope in Christ and confess my faith and commitment to him. I can bury my old life and walk my new life with God. I can then openly join those who believe.…

Summer Barbecue

What better weather for a barbecue than this year’s long, hot summer, and what finer location than Llanfellte farm above the Usk valley to hold it. Great fun, great games that were, shall we say, a little competitive, and fine dining in a bun. Here is a selection of the pictures taken.

The First Evangelist

On the day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit descends on the Apostles like ‘tongues of fire’ and they begin to speak in other languages. The people are amazed at this miracle and about 3000 are baptised that day. Wait, no. That’s not what it says in Acts 2. They began to speak in other languages and the people were confused. Some were ‘amazed and…
