Almighty God, you have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless till they find their rest in you: pour your love into our hearts and draw us to yourself, and so bring us at last to your heavenly city where we shall see you face to face; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
Lord, we pray that your grace
may always precede and follow us,
and make us continually to be given to all good works, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

FOOD BANKS NEED DONATIONS URGENTLY
Within our Deanery, the priest at Middleton Cheney, Nick Leggett, has started a foodbank which runs out of Chacombe Church, and they are always looking for donations.
Rather than have fixed opening hours they run a delivery and collection service.
Revd Nick can be contacted via email: -

In praise of books
If you cannot read all your books...fondle them---peer into them, let them fall open where they will, read from the first sentence that arrests the eye, set them back on the shelves with your own hands, arrange them on your own plan so that you at least know where they are. Let them be your friends; let them, at any rate, be your acquaintances.
