Prayer Breakfast as her busy schedules permit.
The Corona-virus pandemic has indeed caused much disruption to life around
the world and no less to us in the UK. But the response to it all has been
subject to much controversy so there are questions that Christians should be
Historians will tell you that Newton Abbot was two
towns. Suffice it to say that the two former C of E
parishes of Highweek and Wolborough
were united as one parish
of Newton Abbot in 2017. There are
several other Anglican churches within just a very few miles at Kingsteignton, Kingskerswell, Abbotskerswell and Milber, not
necessarily part of CTNAD. With the large number of other churches in Newton Abbot,
the town is now thriving with Christian
Good Friday Walk of Witness. This is one of our
biggest events and all Christians are invited to participate. Typically we
witness to the events of 2,000 years ago in a silent procession through the
town that may pause at various "stations" along the way finally
arriving at one
of our churches for a service.
this will be the first year for a long time that we have had to cancel...
Here are 5 ideas on how we can care
and love those we know, even when we are socially distanced:
1. Keep up contact. Make a phone call, send an email, letter or card saying
that you are praying for them at this time.
2. Keep an eye out for the anniversaries of life events. Make that phone call
to let people know you care.
3. Send a small gift or book purchased on line, maybe insert life words
4. Serve where you can in delivering groceries or medications.
5. Make sure the people you pray for know how much you value them by whatever
means you can find.
Questions all Christians should
be asking about the pandemic
The pandemic has changed lives all
over the world; yet covid-19 has not proved as lethal as previous pandemics in
world history; so it is right that thinking people should be asking lots of
questions. There has been much fear caused mainly by the media.
What was the cause of the
pandemic and was it created by man's activity?
The evidence is becoming clearer on this; the pandemic most likely arose from
a laboratory in Wuhan, China which had been carrying out research into
manipulating bat coronaviruses.
Who was truly vulnerable and
Very early in the pandemic it became apparent that the elderly were most
vulnerable, particularly if they were already suffering from other illnesses.
What if anything could be
done to protect the vulnerable?
Isolating the vulnerable was not effectively carried out in many situations
and in some cases patients were discharged from hospitals into care homes
where the disease spread rapidly. Many doctors abroad looked at various anti-virals
to combat the virus with apparently good results. In many instances patients
who tested positive were not treated in any way but advised or instructed to
stay at home and if they became very ill to seek hospitalisation.
Why were healthy people
obliged to lockdown?
Healthy people are not and never have been serious spreaders of disease; it was
alleged and is still believed that up to one third of healthy asymptomatic
people carry the virus.
Are masks effective?
Another issue that really needs to be questioned; let's illustrate the matter
with a simple question - Would you try to catch tadpoles in a whaling net?
Surgical masks are designed for a particular use in the hospital environment,
yet these devices have been pushed widely without proper assessment about
their effectiveness; Studies have indicated that the wearing of masks can
actually cause harm in restricting the normal breathing process. The wearing
of masks gives users a false sense of security and in the outdoor situation
are quite useless.
What about the jabs?
Experimental inoculations arrived nearly a year ago and in some countries were
quickly mandated. Jabs were seen by many as the only answer to a serious
global pandemic. Quickly following the jabs come vaccine passports resulting
in divided societies.
Is the vaccine effective?
Indications are that the efficacy of the vaccines is questionable. They have
been tested mostly for ability to reduce or prevent serious illness; they do
not prevent transmission so are useless for their alleged function as a
compulsory item before the issuing of a vaccine passport. It is suggested that
they reduce the severity of illness but that too is questionable.
Are the vaccines safe?
According to the media and those who stand to profit from the widespread
distribution of the vaccines they are perfectly safe and everyone should have
them. Yet many doctors have expressed considerable concern about the safety of
the experimental vaccines. Most countries have a system of reporting vaccine
injuries, and without going into too much detail, evidence is beginning to
emerge of large numbers of injuries and significant deaths following
vaccination. Officials have stated that the risk is small when compared with
the risk of going without the vaccine. But other questions arise - what are
the long-term effects of a highly experimental vaccine on the body? Also are
there any risks of viral shedding from those vaccinated to those who have
chosen to remain unvaccinated? These questions remain unanswered but there are
indications of adverse effects although mostly anecdotal at present.
Countries where vaccination rates are high are seeing large numbers of
