Outlook July/ August 2018

Stondon Chapel


I am writing my entry for this summer edition of Outlook on a beautiful sunny afternoon in late June. The tempting aroma of our neighbours' barbeque fills the air and I can hear snippets of lively conversation and laughter. It sounds like everyone is having a good time, enjoying good food and spending time with friends and family.

Here are some Stondon diary dates for July and August 2018:

Several members of Stondon's congregation have been away on holiday already in June. Andy and Melissa have been to Wales, Joyce and Pete went to France, Eileen and Zarrir travelled to China, and Pam flew to Canada, where she actually saw a real live bear! Felix had a great birthday party, and Michael and Fayleen are looking forward to their daughter's wedding in late July. Some of us will be going away in July or August, while others will enjoy their summer break closer to home. However you spend your summer, I wish you all a time of peace and refreshment.
