Count Your Blessings
"Count your Blessings, name them one by one", are the words to an old, but familiar hymn.
And the words certainly rang true for a number of members of our NW church.
Our Outreach project was on the move again, reaching 190 socially isolated individuals with 'Bags of Blessings’.
Church members from Buckley, Emmanuel, Kexborough and Silkstone Common delivered the bags which had a number of items in to bless the recipients, including a jar of blessings – one for each day.
The people receiving the bags were so pleased and grateful, so much so that our volunteers felt they were the ones who were truly blessed as they shared with the many people who had been referred to us via a number of charities.
