There can hardly be a church in the land that doesn’t sing ‘We plough the fields and scatter’ at Harvest time – and we have certainly sung it with gusto across the churches of Bro Celynnin over the last few weeks! In the words of the last verse, we’ve thanked God for his goodness – but also brought with us food much needed by our local foodbank, with humble, thankful hearts. There were so many bags ‘gathered in’, that we could barely fit them in the van today! Thanks to everyone who gave so generously. We pray for all working at the foodbank and the guests who use their services.
We thank thee then, O Father, for all things bright and good;
The seedtime and the harvest, our life, our health, our food.
Accept the gifts we offer for all thy love imparts,
And, what thou most desirest, our humble, thankful hearts.
All good gifts around us are sent from heaven above;
Then thank the Lord, O thank the Lord, for all his love.
