"So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." - Matthew 6:31-33

In this current season, let us use our newfound time wisely and draw near to God.  Let us fixed our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith. 

Here are some resources to help you share God's love or grow in your knowledge of him:
Mail box drop
Jesus calls us to be a people who love our neighbours, more than ourselves. This time of uncertainty is not a time to be focussing inward, but an opportunity to share God’s overwhelming love with those around us.

Letter box those around you, offering practical support to those in isolation. Offer to pick up groceries or even just a friendly phone call, to those who are isolated. Write a personal letter you could deliver to your neighbour’s letter boxes or use these flyers

Planted Meditations
"The speed and anxiety of our lives often means that we don’t slow down to spend meaningful time with God. Reading the scriptures can seem like just another task, or simply more information to process. But God promises that in his word we might find peace, fruitfulness and even delight - that we might be like a tree planted by streams of water. Through the spirit, scripture can nourish our souls and open us up to transformative change. "
