A letter from the Director
Dear ReSource friend,
I am delighted to be sending you the Summer edition of the ReSource Newsletter, which I hope you will enjoy reading. As the Covid-19 restrictions begin to loosen, with the prospect of churches meeting again in-person as well as continuing to meet online, this feels increasingly like a kairos moment, a defining moment for the church’s future life and mission. So, we have asked our contributors to reflect on the question ‘What Now?’. What is God asking of the church, as its first priorities, as we move into a post-pandemic season?
I’m also pleased that our new Director, Christopher Landau, introduces himself in this edition of the Newsletter. I am delighted that Bishop John Holbrook and the ReSource Trustees discerned, from a strong field of candidates, that God was calling Christopher to be my successor. We shall have a month of handover in September before Christopher takes up the reins in October. Do keep Christopher, Carolyn and the children, in your prayers as they move to Telford in August. I’m also pleased that we have been able to appoint the Revd Jolyon Trickey to our staff as part-time Manager of the Alongside Scheme. Jolyon will introduce himself more fully in the Autumn Newsletter.
Thank you, too, for your prayers, for my wife Anne who is undergoing cancer treatment at the moment. We have felt wonderfully loved and supported. Please find enclosed the ReSource Prayer Diary for July through to September.
This mailing comes with love and prayer, and my very best wishes.
The Ven. Kevin Roberts
Director of ReSource
