Many of us have new starts be it new jobs, school, college, university. For us our new team 2017/18 have moved in and already started preparing for meeting our young people around the Diocese in the coming weeks and months on retreat. Have you thought about our advent retreat or young adult weekend

Sometimes it may feel daunting to start something new. Even each new day can be a challenge,  getting out of bed due to worry or being over tired. We are blessed to have scripture. We can get to know Jesus through his word.

“Come to me all who are weary and overburdened, I will give you rest”
Matthew 11:28

With new challenges ahead we must remember to turn to Jesus with our burdens, with the things that weigh us down. Jesus invites us to turn to him in all aspects of life, maybe sharing our happy times, when we are tired and when the road is tough.  Jesus cares for us and wants to walk with us in all areas of our lives not just the happy or sad bit but, in everything.
Do your best and God will do the rest.
