Matthew 11: 28 – ‘Come to me all those who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.’

It has been a year of change for us all, change that has sometimes challenged us and not always been desired. But changes both good and bad give us the opportunity to make decisions and in some cases require us to restructure our lives to face the future.

This challenges us all as we seek to make any change a positive influence on our lives, those of others and our environment.

Just before the end of his earthly ministry, Jesus comforted his disciples – John 4:1

‘Let not your hearts be troubled, you believe in God, believe also in me.’

His teaching and spiritual support remained with them throughout the traumatic times that would follow. His disciples down the ages have have found the same support, comfort and guidance in the spirit of Christ in our daily lives.
