Hearts and flowers

Des Halestrap has been using “New Daylight ” Bible reading notes and has found an interesting story which he would like to share here on the blog.

There was once a heart surgeon ,an atheist ,whose gardener was a Christian. They often discussed the question of God, but the surgeon remained unconvinced.

One day he thought he had clinched it.
“You know,” he said to his gardener, “I have cut open hundreds of human hearts in the course of my work and never found a soul in any of them.”.

The gardener had an answer;
“I too have accidently cut through hundreds of daffodil bulbs during the course of my work,” he said, “but never seen a daffodil inside them.”.

Church Councils – could YOU serve?

The Church Councils are the ‘governing bodies’ of the church.  Because Saint Paul’s is part of a team parish (working with Christ the King and Saint Michael’s in the Parish of Tettenhall Regis), we have two church councils:

The Parochial Church Council (PCC) has the legal responsibility for the parish, including worship patterns, wedding, funeral and baptism policy, appointment of ministers and matters of finance, buildings etc.

The District Church Council (DCC) makes decisions on matters specifically relating to Saint Paul’s.  The DCC has representatives on the PCC… or, to put it another way, if you serve on PCC you will also serve on the DCC of your church.

Could you serve on the DCC or PCC? Each year, new members are elected at the annual meeting.  Usually, you serve for three years.  If you would like to consider becoming a member of one of our church councils, please speak to Jim or to the DCC secretary, Corrina Thacker.

Elections will be held this Sunday, 22nd April, at the District Church Meeting after the 10:30am service.




Saint Paul's, Pendeford
