A Message from the Wardens – 12th February 2021

Dear Friends,

Dorothy Firth sent the following poem which she wrote after walking up to Owler Bar on one of the lovely cold clear days we have had recently. It’s a great reminder of some of the good things we can still enjoy and an encouragement to stay positive. Thank you Dorothy!

Totley Walking

Beautiful Monday
Blue sky and Sun day. Look at the sky
The birds flying by.
Go for a walk
Meet and talk
As you pass by
Time to say “Hi”
Though we’re in lockdown No need to frown Whatever the weather We’re in this together
So lift up your spirits
The Lord has no limits “This too will pass”.

We were glad to have been able to join the Snowdon family on Monday for Maurice’s thanksgiving service. How frustrating not to be able to sing aloud to “Thine be the Glory”, but we were able to celebrate the strong faith that was the foundation of Maurice and Marjorie’s life together for over 70 years.

Earlier that day we heard the sad news that Harry Liddle had died suddenly on 4th February. We have happy memories of the time he and Lynda spent at Totley in their “retirement” before they moved to the clergy retirement home in Lytham St Annes.

James has spoken to Frank Snow who is well and sends greetings to friends at All Saints.

Gay has sent details of a zoom conference which she has booked to attend and wonders if anyone else would be interested too. She has heard Steve Gaukroger in the past and says that he is really worth hearing.

“Hope Changes Everything” on Friday 19th March 7:30 – 9:00pm & Saturday 20th March 9:30am – 1:30pm. Guest speaker: Steve Gaukroger.

This Conference is for anybody and everybody, whether or not you attend a CBS class. There is no charge.
The link below shows an invitation and how to book. You only need to provide your name and email address

Plans for the Lent courses will be sent separately in the next few days when we have the log in details.

Sunday’s Coffee and Chat at 11am will be taking place as usual. Details can be requested from the Wardens.

Hope to see you then. With love from,
Ann & James
