East Sussex Snow Today

Just think. From beneath the snow will emerge a glorious English garden. What great encouragement for all who at this time are going through any adversity. Please scroll right down.

The Winter Garden

Below are some flowers which were growing in the same garden before winter Resting now, these beautiful promises of life renewed will burst through in Spring. As day follows night so spring follows winter. The darkness of Good Friday was followed by the blazing white light of Easter day. To God be the glory.

I guarantee that if you don’t know about the Golden Ratio, when you learn about it you will think about it and remember it for the rest of your life. You will want to tell others about it.

Please follow steps 1-5 in order. It is best to look at the video (step 6) last.

1. Look at this sequence of numbers: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987 

2. Get out your calculator,

3. Notice that each number is the sum of the two preceding it. i.e. 0+1=1, 1+1=2, 2+1=3, 3+2=5 and so on….

4. Notice that if you divide any number by its preceding number you get 1.6*

e,g, 21/13 = 1.62*

e.g. 8/ 5 = 1.60*

e.g. 987/610 = 1.62*

5, look at this shell. Note the spirals.

Theology: A Very Sensible Box

Do we trust God and at the same time have many unanswered questions about Him and how He works? Leslie Weatherhead offers us some very sensible advice: Leave those questions in a box marked: “Awaiting Further Light.”

Sensible advice indeed, for “now we see through a glass darkly….” (1 Cor. 13,12)

The late Leslie D Weatherhead C.B.E. M. A. PhD. D. Litt. D. D. was Minister at the City Temple, London. He was President of the Methodist Conference and Hon. Chaplain to Her late Majesty’s Forces .He is the author of many books including “The Christian Agnostic”, where the above advise is recorded.

The Power of Commitment

Commitment

“The moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”

“Bear Cottage” – A Very Sacred Place – Please read this blog post

John Bartels May 2022

St. Patrick’s Estate is high on a hill overlooking Manly in Australia. On the Estate is a small green field and some buildings overlooked by a statue of the Holy Mother. You stand there. You are reduced to silence. And so you should be for the buildings are “Bear Cottage”, a children’s Hospice. The only one is New South Wales and only one of three in Australia.

Please read about “Bear Collage” here and hhttps://bearcottage.schn.health.nsw.gov.au/home.php#/lifeere and remember everyone there in your prayers.

Thank you

The Door that Opens

There is a door
A door that lovingly opens. 
It whispers "There is more,
Much more."
As choirs from the trees at dawn
Their eternal paeans sing.
