Thy Will be Done  - 13 October

Returning to the study of the Lord's prayer, John progressed to the line 'Thy will be done'. He opened the informal time with a rendering of a good news / bad news joke. In the gospel there is also good news, and a bit of bad news. But this time it is not a joke. The good news is that God is all good, nothing sinful can be around him, so we can always rely on him. However the bad news is we have all sinned! Jesus, as the son of God had no sins, but he took our sins, and gave us God's forgiveness.

Hat Scarves and Gloves  -  Sunday 27 October
St. Mungo's congregation will once again rally to the call for warm clothing for those in Eastern Europe that have little to keep them warm when winter strikes hard.

A lot of  busy knitting needles have been hard at work around Penicuik making woolly hats, gloves, scarves and blankets. The fruits of their labours will be on display in the church on Sunday 27 October.

The church will also be open on Saturday 26th 10am to 12 noon to receive your items, or bring them any Sunday morning. Remember if you do not knit then buying a wooly hat or item will be equally welcomed by those who will feel the bitter cold in a far of land this coming winter.

The collection of knitting will head for
Blythswood Care who in this their 26th year of operation will distribute them across Eastern European states. .
