In March’s notes, entitled ‘The presence of God’ Beverley Shepherd reflects upon the importance of God’s presence in our lives. Drawing on the example of individuals in the Bible – all who fervently hungered after God – she encourages us to cultivate a lifestyle in which His presence will be the keynote.
In April’s notes entitled ‘Ecclesiastes: searching for meaning’, Fiona Smith investigates the principles for wise and meaningful living laid out in Ecclesiastes. Challenging us to examine our own lives, she raises the question: are we women overly concerned with ‘the accoutrements of life’ – wealth, education, entertainment, relationships etc – or are our eyes fixed upon the One who gives us life? A key question to ask ourselves, these notes are pertinent to us all.
