Appeal from the Minister: Dear friends, it is with considerable sadness and with a measure of frustration that I have asked this be included in the intimation bulletin. There have been a number if instances - despite a plea being made previously- where members and adherents within our congregation and others throughout our community, have fallen ill, had hospital admission or have suffered bereavement in immediate or extended family, and no one has told me about it, until after the event - sometimes by weeks. Whether it is assumed that such vital information is known by everyone else, or if when you learn of someone's/a family's time of need and don't feel it should be you who lets me know, please don't hesitate to 'phone, text, email or call in to the manse, or ask to see me after Church. If you don't tell me I won't know, and cannot help until sometimes too late...which can sadly be too little too late, causing additional hurt to those already in distress. To be more direct, if it is you or your family who are personally in a time of need and want me to come to see you, please don't wait for someone else to tell me for you, or expect that they automatically will. If you feel you can't, please ask someone to contact me for you. I need to hear from you. To any who feel they have been overlooked in their times of trial and need, and wish to have had more assistance and help from me personally or from others in the Church, allow me to in light of what is said above, wholeheartedly apologize. We looked on Wednesday night of last week at James 5, where those who are ill - apparently bedridden - are instructed to call for the Elders of the Church to come and pray with them. Please take these words to your heart and memory, and help us to help you in this way.
