Director's Letter September 2020

Dear ReSource friend,

I am delighted to send you a copy of our Autumn Newsletter, in which a number of contributors explore what church beyond the pandemic might look like and in which we share some recent ReSource news. We are particularly pleased to be able to announce in this edition the appointment of the Rt Revd Mark Tanner, the Bishop of Chester, as our new Patron, following Archbishop Sentamu’s retirement. In welcoming +Mark as our Patron, +John Holbrook, Chair of the ReSource Trustees says “Bishop Mark is a Christian leader of spiritual passion, deep wisdom and real vision. We are thrilled to welcome him as our Patron”. Bishop Mark has written the opening article in the Newsletter.

The pandemic continues to restrict our travelling ministry, though we are able to conduct increasing parts of our work by Zoom, and we are taking this opportunity to develop our range of online resources. You may be interested to take a look on our website at four short Sanctuary Day retreats for personal or small group use, focusing on the pandemic and what we have both lost and gained through the experience of the last six months. We are also sending in this mailing a brochure describing our ministry and the kind of events you may wish to consider booking as you look into the next year.    

I am also enclosing a revised Prayer Diary for September, and a new one for October, once again grateful to all those who pray regularly for our ministry.

This mailing comes with the love and prayers of the ReSource team,

The Ven. Kevin Roberts

Director of ReSource

PS. If there is anything specific that we can pray for you or your church please let us know on prayer@resource-arm.net or phone 01952 371300 

 Testimonial

"Everyone in our online group enjoyed doing the Sanctuary Day for our Times. People engaged with the story, identified with the meditation and wanted to share honestly. I have really benefited from using the sanctuary day materials myself, and because they are online I can access the material again and I know I will want to!"
