Dear Friends,

As we enter June I am hoping that the weather will be kind and we don't experience the June 'monsoon' which visits from time to time. Revd Fiona Robinson will have been ordained as priest at Chester Cathedral on 2nd June by the time most of you read this and the whole benefice will have celebrated both at the Cathedral and the following day on 3rd June as she presides at her first Holy Communion in Marthall Church at 3pm followed by afternoon tea in The Hall at Marthall. If you get this beforehand, do join us!

Working with others can be a challenge but I'm happy to report that Fiona and I have worked very well together over the past year and long may it continue! The important thing about working with others is to remember that we all do things differently. We need to give one another space to do things our own way, sometimes even if it means someone messing up. We learn a lot through messing up, or getting things wrong, don't we!
Most things though are a nuisance, rather than devastating and I think many of us manage to 'think on the hoof' to sort something out. That's probably because life just is messy a lot of the time.

When I read the Bible I realise that so much of it involves people messing up; living with the mess and calling out to God to help. For the Christian, life is just as messy as that of anyone else, we simply trust that God, through Jesus Christ is with us through all of it. We ask for help whether life is messy or not.
I recently heard that an American evangelist called Joe Ostein said this: "you have to press on through the 'no's' until you get to the 'yes'". The trouble was I heard 'nose' not 'no's'! Anyway, once I'd recovered from a fit of the giggles, I realised that it makes a great deal of sense. As St Paul said in Philippians 3: 'This one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus.' Amen.

Kind regards

Revd Gerri Tetzlaff
