Dear friends, I am just as glad as you are that summer has come. It is so great to be able to get outside, time away, go for a walk, a bike ride, and time spent relaxing. So make time to refresh, recharge, and renew in this season.

Continue to make time to spend with your church family as well! We (my wife and I) have been blessed with a baby boy ‘Samuel’. I also have been delighted to conduct the wedding of a lovely couple Catherine and Douglas at St Giles in the beginning of July, it was such a joy to see them so happy surrounded by their families and friends. We are continuing to have a joint service between St. Giles and St. Margaret’s, and ‘Open Church’ on Tuesdays. There is much happening, and much coming!

The writer of Hebrews says it this way, “…and let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another-and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:24-25)

Wherever your summer takes you, go with God. May you have a blessed and refreshing summer season, and we hope to see you soon!

With love and blessings,

Fr.  Ayoob
