Suffolks Fair 2015 – Thank you and a Reminder to please ‘pray the flags’.


An enormous thank you to those who made up Team Suffolks Fair 2015, for work put in before, during and after the Fair: 217 flags were produced and  very many conversations took place with people who did not wish to ‘paint a prayer’ – but who stopped and engaged.  And there was a good distribution [and more conversations!] of the ‘Try Praying’ booklets. The prayers are in the Memorial chapel and will stay there until the end of June.  Do have a look and pray your way through them.  There are some definite themes, as well as some very personal ones, of tears and laughter – and a great deal of love.  Photographs are at the back of Church. I pray that we encouraged people to begin to engage more fully in praying and that we spread the Good News of God’s love through human beings, willing to smile and listen, as well as spread the Word.  Liz Mitchell
