Sunday reflection spot - sharing and giving


The readings appointed in the Anglican church for the third Sunday in Advent (which is today) include a sermon by John the Baptist in which he strongly urged people to share with those who are in difficulties.

At St James' this morning in the sermon which followed that reading, the new Vicar the Revd. Robert Jackson, pointed out how relevant this was to our current position in Cumbria, in which five thousand homes and businesses were flooded this weekend, and the community has responded magnificently with many people providing help

The fund set up by the Cumbria Community Foundation to help has already passed the million pound mark. If you would like to join those who have given in this way to support those who are in difficulties following the December 2015 floods in Cumbria, here is a reminder of how to do so.
