COLLECT


Grant, we pray, Almighty God, that as we believe your only begotten Son our Lord Jesus Christ to have 
ascended into the heavens, so we in heart and mind may also ascend and with him continually dwell;  
who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. 

AMEN

USED STAMPS
A big bag pf stamps was dropped off at Perth Airport for SCAA (Scottish Charity Air Ambulance) last week. Any stamps collected can be given to me or put in the basket on top of the bookshelves in St. Catharine’s 
Centre.   Many thanks to those who contributed.   Keep them coming!  (Mary Hall)

 

CHARITY SHOP FOR CHRISTIAN AID
Many thanks to all who helped in any way – a lot of people from all the churches in the area were involved in one way or another.   As well as the total amount raised, £1,052 we were able to give clothes and shoes to a charity which donates to refugees, and also kitchenstuff to an organisation which makes up- starter packs for new tenants in Perth   It was aninspiring week of inter-church friendship and 
Co-operation!  Who would like to run it next year?   (contact Mary Hall)

 

BOOKLET OF POEMS COLLECTED BY GILL BUXBAUM
Gill, a member of St. Catharine’s, asked people to let her know favourite poems which she would have printed.   Gill moved to Lincoln a couple of years ago, has kept on at the Printer, and the booklets are now here, ready to be distributed. Booklets will be in the churches, andare free to anyone who wants one.   The only stipulation is that they should not be sold, for copyright reasons.

 

We have again and again declared that before anyone can enter into the Victorious life, two things are necessary – surrender and faith:  man’s part and God’s part.
First, we must be willing to give up all known sin and all self-will and surrender ourselves entirely into God’s hands.   Then in faith we must look to God to sanctify us

Let go and let God

Now it is extraordinary how difficult it is to make people understand what “surrender”
Is.   And when they do understand, it is difficult to persuade them that it is for their good! 

Be careful to remember that surrender is not simply making a promise to God to 
forsake sin and always to do His will.,   That would be living under the Law.   Surrender
Is just turning over to God all that we are and have, for Him to do with us whatever He
wishes.   Surrendered Christians are often defeated, because they think that they
can carry out their good resolutions by God’s help.   No!   Just hand yourself over to
God, and then trust Christ to do His part. “He is able to keep.”
It is not our surrender that gives us the victory.   It is not even our faith!   It is
Christ Himself – the Faithful One.

Surrender and trust, and Christ will never fail you.
