This is a message from Barrie Cash, a good friend to Upper Tweeddale and a frequent preacher in our churches:
"I am distancing and isolating at home as many of us are. Over 70 and having underlying health conditions we find it frustrating that we are not able to help and support other people as we would naturally do. For most of my adult life I have been a Methodist minister and so believe that the one thing I can do is pray for other people and try and answer need in that way.
Some of us find it hard to pray, others find they don’t know how but there is nothing complicated. All we need to say is: “God help me” and we have begun.
If you want prayers said for you or any help with them then just get in touch. I live in the Terrace so know what its like round here and the great mix of people who live here.
The Lord bless you and keep you, The Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord lift up the light of his countenance upon you and give you peace"
