Key Events in the Benefice

from our vicar, Reverend Sue Giles

Thinking allowed.

Many organisations and groups have a code of conduct that everyone is expected to agree to and work to. These codes may include standards of dress, how quickly a phone call or e-mail should be returned, the levels of confidentiality that apply, where and how data should be stored, what health and safety rules should be adhered to. In places such as a kitchen or a hospital these standards and rules can mean the difference between life and death. Fail to follow protocols on a hospital drug round and someone could receive the wrong medication, or the wrong amount, or drugs could go missing. Fail to follow the required labelling or hygiene rules and a customer could end up with severe food poisoning or an allergic reaction to a particular ingredient.

But what about in our own personal lives? What rules and standards do we adopt in our relationships and our behaviour? What code do you live by, what personal rules govern your actions?

For Christians, the Ten Commandments are a fundamental code directing our behaviour. These ten principles appear simple but have far reaching implications if they are fully applied. In the past many people knew what these ten commandments were. They were taught in school, in church and appeared painted on boards in many churches. Now many people might get one or two of the ten but would find it hard to name all of them. Are they out-dated or irrelevant, do they have anything to say to our modern society or to younger generations?

If you would like to consider this and explore the standards you live by, why not come and join us on our Lent course this year. We will be watching a short DVD on Thursday evenings in Queen’s Court in Bottisham at 7.30 pm beginning with the 10th Commandment and working backwards towards the 1st.  There will be opportunities to discuss what we have seen at a later date either at Anglesey Abbey café so why not come along and share your views and thoughts and hear how others feel about the ten best ways.

Our next session is Thursday April 27th  7.30 pm at Queen’s Court, Bottisham and then 4th May

With best wishes

Sue

 

Holy Week Challenge

Around the villages of the benefice are a number of symbols associated with the story of Holy Week. Take a picture of the ones you find and bring them to the service on Good Friday 10am in Swaffham Bulbeck or to a service on Easter Day. For both adults and children, take time to reflect on the symbol and write a poem or a reflection or paint a picture or take phots which speak to you about what happened to Jesus on his way to the cross.
