To sing with heart and voice,

MATTHEW 5 v

When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he sat down his disciples came to him.

Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying;

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called the children of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.

Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”

Peace Garden

Thetford Methodist Church, Norfolk

 

 

Earlier this year, Thetford Methodist Church, unveiled a newly erected Peace Pole and Peace Garden.

 

Many months in the making, the garden and pole are an initiative of the church to give back to the local community.

 

The service of dedication was led by the committee that had been involved with the design and construction of the garden and also included a short talk by the Revd Fred King who, at 94, is the church's oldest active member.

 

As well as many members from the church and locals people from the community, a number of local councillors and the mayor also attended. All added stones from their gardens as signs of their own commitment to peace.

 

The Revd Ken Nicholls, a supernumerary minister from at the church, said: “With everyone rushing around all the time, it seemed appropriate that with the vacant space we had next to the church building we could provide a place of calm for quiet and reflection.”
