Peter Green: August 2019
Today, we welcome our new minister Rev. Richard Atkinson and family as they move into the Herston Close manse. We also wish Richard and his wife Louise advance congratulations on their 28th wedding anniversary they will celebrate tomorrow.
Welcome also to their son Ben and daughter Fran. Ben has a Masters degree in music and is starting a PGCE in September to become a fully qualified teacher. Meanwhile, Fran is due to start her final year of a Social Care degree in Cheltenham.
About ministry, Richard writes, "We are all on a journey, remembering key points from the past and hoping for significance looking into the future. I think this is a model which enables a cherishing of what has been, alongside an enthusiasm for what will be."

A few years ago, I started talking to Tom, a young homeless man, and when I asked if there was anything that I could do to help, he said that he had been given food and drink, but his hands were freezing (he said that hot drinks helped as you can wrap your hands around them until the drink goes cold). Whilst he was talking, I thought of my own hands — all snug inside my woolly gloves. So, I...
