God has not promised skies always blue, but he has promised strength for each day.
We may be feeling dismayed or concerned that our beloved vicar has decided to retire later this year. Let us rather look to God to give us the grace to support Mary in the coming months as she completes her ministry amongst us. Then we can work together to keep alive the churches in our parish during the period of interregnum. Now is the time to begin praying that we will be able to welcome a new incumbent to Filey who can grow to love this quirky seaside haven as much as we do.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
(2 Corinthians 12:9.)
