Dear friend,

We are in times that are far from easy, right now. It is difficult to get a feel for how things are going to work out in the future and not being able to join together as freely as we have always done in the past, on Sunday and at other times has been strange and a great loss. The current reduced numbers for a service, along with all the precautions that need to be taken, is better than nothing but each time we gather we are acutely aware of all those who are not able to be in their usual pew.

We count our blessings though, for the family, friends and neighbours we care for and who care for us.

Amongst the many things that have simply not happened this year, is the Cathedral’s annual Gift Day. The Day was planned for, twice, but Covid lockdown put an end to the first date and the second was at the time of the tragic loss of one of our young people in the town and it just did not feel right or appropriate to go ahead.

Now, as the weeks roll into months, we are so very conscious of the many for whom these are financially challenging times and of those too, who are trying to help family who are struggling. We do not want to add to that burden and wondered if in 2020, as we celebrate harvest and the good gifts around us, we could encourage people to enjoy and give thanks for the natural world and for all those who work to provide for us from it and invite too, everyone to pray for those immediately around us and throughout the world, who are living with uncertainty and worrying about how to provide for their family.

If you feel you do have the capacity to make a donation and feel so led, then it will be most gratefully received with thanks to God. Details are at the end of this note.

The Kirk Session and Deacons’ Court are extremely grateful for everyone’s support during this time and even more so for people’s prayers. Keep those prayers going as we look to re-shape the life of our world in ways that are not going to lose sight of the care Jesus calls us to have for the poor, the sick, the stranger and any in need.

May God’s richest blessings be showered upon you and all whom you love. Now and always.

Yours in Christ,
The Kirk Session and Deacons’ Court of Dornoch Cathedral (SC000315)
