Welcome to St Andrew's, Cobham. We are Cobham’s parish church and our aim is to know Jesus, and to make him known. We offer a host of activities for adults and children. Please explore our website to find out more. We hope to see you soon.
Today as I write this, it is Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day. A day when we prepare to enter the season of Lent.
Traditionally this done by using up the rich foods that we might forego during Lent, eating them in the form of pancakes. The pancake mixture is stirred to get the air in and then, half cooked, tossed lightly into the air to turn it over & cook the other side.
What are the rich things that so occupy us? Are we prepared to be stirred by the Holy Spirit and hold on to those things so lightly that we can allow him to toss them into the air and risk them coming down in a bit of a mess?
Lent isn't just about giving things up though, it's about re-focussing on God and our priorities in His service. You could "take on" something by joining a Lent Group. See the News items. DG
