February Meeting: Wednesday 23rd February at 1.30

We meet to think about and pray Psalm 27.

Yahweh is my light and my salvation,
whom shall I fear?
Yahweh is the fortress of my life,
of whom should I be afraid?

I have read the Psalm many times since we last met; I prefer the Jerusalem Bible translation given above. It will be of interest if members study different translations.

We are to have a collection for the Carmelite India Fund so please be prepared to support this cause.

January Meeting

Seven of us met to discuss “Stop the Clocks” and “The Tick of Two Clocks” by Joan Bakewell.

Most found the books very enjoyable and insightful; I was in the minority in finding it difficult to struggle through.

March Meeting: Wednesday 23rd March at 1:30

I will see you next at the meeting on 23rd March when we are on ” The Road to Wigan Pier” with George Orwell.

Best wishes
