Filey, Faith, Future
As regular readers will know, I am a regular visitor to Filey and find it to be a place of relaxation and refreshment. But most of all, over the years, it is a place where my family have been welcomed and fed by the church leaders and people at St John's and St Oswalds.
Through times of personal ill-health and a variety of family difficulties I have been sustained and supported by the prayers of Filey friends and spiritual leaders. This has enabled me to return to home and work as a Reader with new energy and vigour.
I give thanks for this and pray that as Filey parish faces a time of change as it anticipates the appointment of its new Vicar, you will be very conscious that God is guiding the prayers and preparation. I pray too that the decision of who to appoint will be clear and will lead to a time of growing together and growing in outreach to those who have yet to find their home in Christ.
God bless you all.
