Easton Benefice Parishes - Events that Changed the World

 And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still.  And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows.  And the people began to think differently.
And the people healed.  And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.
And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.
Kitty O'Meara

We don’t know where this story came from, but it is a calm telling of a time of great change.

Mother Julian of Norwich lived through anxious times with plagues and uprisings.  In her anchorite self isolation, whilst still hearing the bustle of the street outside, she had a vision of God speaking to her. “He did not say, ‘You shall never have a rough passage, you will never be over-strained, you will never feel dis-eased’, but he did say, ‘You will never be overcome.’” We live in anxious times and we are conscious that many long to hear God say in our own day, “You will never be overcome.”

 We will not be able to hold church services of public worship until further notice and our churches are now locked. We are working out ways of using technology to join together for prayer and worship and encouraging people to reflect and pray at home.  Watch out for notices at churches and in our villages.

We hope you will join in the BBC Sunday worship:

                Radio 4     8.10am Sunday Worship

                Radio 3     3.00pm Choral Evensong

                BBC1        1.15pm Songs of Praise


Please contact any of us to help you or find someone who can.  Rev. Laura, Rev. Penny and the Churchwardens

Help in tidying the Churchyard

Some of you may not be aware that Bawburgh Church has a volunteer mowing team who give up a couple of hours every six weeks to mow and strim certain parts of the church grounds.

We would greatly welcome any extra help with these tasks. We will be notifying you through Bawburgh News as to the days when these tasks take place during the course of 2020. If you would like to help just turn up on the allocated days bringing tools, such as rakes, wheelbarrows and gloves to wear.

Please contact Symon Gaughan if you feel you are able to lend a hand, or wish to know more.
