Rev James Bamber

Dear Friends
I read recently that bubble wrap celebrated its golden anniversary in 2010. Originally it was invented as wallpaper. However, the idea never took off. The inventors Marc Chavannes and Al Fielding imagined a different application for the bubbly wallpaper and created an industry with annual revenues of $4 billion. The vision of these two inventors made all the difference between success and failure for Bubble Wrap — they were receptive to new possibilities, willing to be flexible and open to change.
As this plan period moves through as a Circuit we will enter a further season of change as we say thank you and farewell to Paul and Matt alongside their families. There will be an opportunity to celebrate all God had given us through them when we gather on 21st July at St. Ives — I hope you will be able to join us. Change can be unsettling and anxiety inducing. Equally it can be exciting and transformative. How we approach it in part depends on our response to God's invitation to continue to travel in trust with openness, receptivity and a willingness to reimagine how we are a church together. We may not always know where we are being led but we can always know who is leading us. As we continue to travel together, discovering all God has for us, may we do so with these words shaping our movement: 'Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.' Proverbs 3: 5 — 6.
With my love and prayers,
James
