Eco Tip

Celebrate Spring! In a season signifying new beginnings and as restrictions slowly ease, we pray that you can find peace and refreshment in God, and in signs of His love and splendour in creation. Make sure you’re giving yourself quality time enjoying creation; smelling the blossom, tapping catkins, listening to bird song, finding a footprint or identifying spring flowers. Nature can boost our happiness so take time to observe nature in your gardens, on your balconies, and in your local green spaces.

Remember Central Prayer Time, half an hour every Tuesday, 10:30-11am. You will receive a weekly email to help you be a part of this prayer time.

Have you tried joining Rev Paul live at 2:30pm on Wednesday afternoons on Facebook where he is leading a bible study? Plus there is a weekly Sunday Service on Facebook and YouTube. Also, Sunday School continues through Zoom; and emails are being sent for further devotions: for more information on any of these please get in touch.

Resources and material for worship will be on our Circuit website and Facebook page.

Book Club 

Lizard and Mount’s Bay Methodist Circuit 

I (Isaac McNish) am starting a Circuit book club and below is some more information if you are interested in taking part. We shall be reading The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry by John Mark Comer. It is brilliant, encouraging and challenging. I wholeheartedly believe that this book shares a message that we need to hear in our culture today. It is accessible and stretching both for those who would not describe themselves as avid readers and for bookworms. What will it look like? Each week we shall tackle a chapter of the book (they are quick to read but as with all good writing, much is conveyed in a short space). The meetings will involve opportunity to discuss and reflect on what we have read. We want to learn and enjoy the journey together, not to test anyone’s understanding or put people on the spot. Importantly, each week we shall finish with a reflection on how we each can take what we have learned and put it into practice. Our aim will be to read not just for information but transformation. When will it be? Weekly on Monday evenings. Our first online gathering will be 7:30PM. Monday 5 October 2020. Where will it be? On Zoom. A link will be sent daytime on Mondays to everyone who has registered. How do I register? To book a space so that you receive the Zoom meeting link, please contact Theresa Hosking at  clericalsw@outlook.com. You will need to get hold of your own copy of the book: https://www.amazon.co.uk/ Ruthless-Elimination-Hurry-emotionally-spiritually/dp/1529308380/ref=sr_1_1? crid=1T3RTH1XSHXOV&dchild=1&keywords=the+ruthless+elimination+of+hurry&qid=160 0447589&sprefix=the+ruthless+%2Caps%2C202&sr=8-1 

If this cost would prevent you from participating, the LAMB circuit will order a copy for you free of charge. What people have been saying about The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry: “The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry is refreshing , revitalising, and a shock to the system. Beautifully and compellingly written, it is a prophetic message for our time.” — Pete Greig, founder of the 24-7 prayer movement and senior pastor of Emmaus Road, Guildford, UK “John Mark Comer is a hugely talented leader, speaker, and writer. You will find lots of wise advice here.” — Nicky Gumbel, Vicar of Holy Trinity Brompton, London “Living as a spiritually and mentally healthy follower of Jesus in in our technological, calendar-driven culture is, it turns out, quite difficult. In this book John Mark Comer shares a practical, personal, and challenging call to imagine new ways that our lives can imitate Jesus.” — Tim Mackie, cofounder of the Bible Project
