I am very pleased to be able to send you the Summer edition of the ReSource Newsletter, which I hope that you will enjoy reading. You will see that I give an update on our development issues on page 8 (the final page) and that I give some details in my editorial letter (on the front page) of ReSource’s impending move from Wells. I am also attaching here the ReSource Prayer Diary, grateful to those of you who pray for us day by day or even from time to time.

I am very sorry to have to inform you, though, of the recent death of Mr Philip Carver, the acting Chair of the ReSource Trustees. Philip died unexpectedly on Tuesday 19 June. Would you please pray for his wife Heather in the shock and disorientation of losing Philip so suddenly, along with their adult children John, Chris, Elizabeth and their families. Philip’s death is a big loss to ReSource, and we shall miss him terribly, but the loss will be greatest for Heather and the family, for whom we pray God’s deepest peace as they travel the rocky road of bereavement.

There will be opportunity to say more in due course but I wouldn’t want to make this announcement without a brief tribute to Philip’s work with ReSource, which he did in his retirement alongside significant ministries at Holy Trinity, Leicester, where he was a Reader and the leader of Trinity Money Advice Leicester. With typical commitment he took on the ReSource chairman’s role in difficult circumstances and has steered us well over the past two years, always with grace and an impressive attention to detail. He has been a wonderful pastoral support to me personally, and always a good listening ear. We shall miss him, but take comfort in knowing that he is now with the Lord he loved and served.

Philip had recently announced his intention to stand down as acting chair in the autumn, so discussions for a successor are already underway and I hope to be able to announce the name of the new Chair of Trustees soon.

This comes with my prayers for you and for the ongoing work of ReSource, as we endeavor to enable little, local and ordinary churches to engage with the Holy Spirit for renewal, discipleship and mission,

You will see that the Newsletter outlines in some detail the priorities that we believe we are to develop in our work, and the new structure and organisation that we believe that we shall need in order to be effective over the country in our mission to enable little, local and ordinary churches to engage with the Holy Spirit for renewal, discipleship and mission. I am grateful to Phil Stone for contributing an article about the Scargill Movement with whom we are looking to partner more closely, and to Christopher Landau for his personal reflections after nine months working as the manager of the ReSource Future process. As well as some reports on recent ReSource work you will also find an inspiring article from Alan Kerbey our new Development Consultant, and a letter to you on the final page from Philip Carver, the Acting Chair of the ReSource Trustees.

Thank you for your prayers and support over these last few busy weeks, in which the ReSource Future process has been in top gear alongside a full diary of regular work and speaking engagements. It has been an exhilarating autumn so far, and we thank God for His hand upon our work, and for the opportunities we have had to speak to a wide range of people about our future. Please do continue praying for us. We so need it and appreciate it as the essential underpinning of all that we do.

The Winter edition of the ReSource Newsletter will give you a small glimpse into the work we have been doing at ReSource in recent months, along with some initial feedback on the ReSource Future process from Christopher, an article about the Filling Station Trust, a book review and a Pentecost story. I hope that you enjoy reading it. The prayer diary for the next quarter can also be found above, with prayer-pointers for each day.

I am delighted to send you the autumn editions of the ReSource Newsletter and Prayer Letter, both here attached, which I hope you will enjoy reading and using. It has been a pleasure in these last few months to be involved in a variety of church weekends, renewal days and retreats, and to be working alongside leaders in a variety of denominations and we have tried to give you a partial snapshot of this in the Newsletter. If reading it prompts you to think whether ReSource staff or associates might help you in similar ways into the months ahead, please be in touch and I would love to talk it through with you.
