Good Morning Church!
I wonder how many of you will have spotted something about yesterday (Friday 9th June)?
It’s not social media, or celebrity, or something particular in the news. Instead Friday 9th June is the day we remember St Columba, or as we call him in Ireland, Colum Cille (it means Dove of the Church). If you’re at church this Sunday or indeed watching online then do keep your eyes and ears open and I’m sure you’ll hear a mention of him!
St Columba was heavily involved in setting up the monastery in Iona and even through the ups and downs of the centuries we are still seeing the fruit of the spirituality of that community today as God is worshipped daily amongst the people who reside there still.
Why not stop in the stillness and the quiet and spend a moment with God, in amongst all the busyness of life, relax and refresh yourself in His presence. I pray that each of us will know that moment of peace each day as we dwell in that place of peace.

STEVE’S PUZZLES AND OTHER STUFF
Steve has provided us with another edition and we’re up to 99, no flake in this one but plenty of fun puzzles and more! I also hear from him that there will be another Mini-SCaNS coming up soon.
Have a great week, may you know God’s blessing and strength in all that you do. May you know the peace of God in the moment of stillness and may His Spirit be with you.
