This week we were amazed by the effect of a flash flood that caused a bit of drama on Nottingham Road. One minute we’re enjoying the sunshine in the Wild and Green Community Garden at St Mark’s in our shorts; half an hour later we’re in our wellies wading across to Tichfield Park. Flash floods are becoming an increasingly common site in some parts of the country and they’ve been in our prayers.
With this reminder of the increasing climate chaos we trust that it is within the will of God that ‘creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and will obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God’ (Romans 8:21), we commit ourselves to the transforming work of God in nature and spirit to the glory of God.
