Dear Congregations,

I do not know about you, but for me the longer, lighter days and the beautiful, bright daffodils are just what the doctor ordered! it's as if the world, waking up from its winter's sleep, is making me feel more alive than ever. And the fact that all of this is happening in the lead-up to Easter, when we will celebrate New Life, just makes it so much more meaningful.

I've had so much time to think the last couple of months.... time to reflect on the things I am thankful for. I'm thankful to be able to live in this beautiful country and to once again experience the start of Spring and the joy that brings. I'm thankful for my lovely family, who are supporting me so well during my time of convalescence and who fill my life with a different kind of joy. I am thankful for every single one of you! Your love and support fill me with more than joy - it makes me feel truly humble...I miss you. I miss being at church on Sundays. I miss the friendly faces greeting me at the church door. I miss visiting people. I've missed quite a number of funerals and miss having the opportunity  help people when they are most vulnerable. I missed formally saying goodbye to George, which was really hard for me. But at the same time I am so proud to be the minister of two such thriving congregations. I've heard such good reports of Kirk's Cafe, the Beetle Drive, the Scots Night, of Alison and Suzanne's meaningful sermons....

And all this just brought me to the realisation that being the minister of Polbeth Harwood and the West Kirk of Calder is not my job, it's part of who I am. And I cannot wait to get back.

May God bless you all this Easter, and always,

Love 

Nanda
