Autumn and Harvest
“Time and Tide wait for no man” is a quotation familiar to all of us – and a saying we all know to be true!
Way back in history it was King Canute who tried to sort out ways of holding back the tide. For each and every person, of every generation, sorting out ways of holding back the “March of Time” has been a considerable challenge.
As I write these notes, we have reached the middle of August and the Summer holidays are well under way. However, it won’t be long before September arrives and with it the start of the Season of Autumn – the “Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness”! It’s a lovely time of year, with the changing colours of the leaves and all the other changes we see around us in nature.
One of the “Highlights” of the Season is Harvest Festival time, and Tabor’s Harvest Festival, this year on Sunday 2nd October. Our morning service will be taken by Liz Richardson, and in the evening at 6:00 p.m. we welcome as our guests the Paulton Concert Band, and the congregations of the Timsbury churches, for our United Harvest “Songs of Praise”.
I am quite sure we are all looking forward to sharing together in our Annual Celebrations – “Come, Ye Thankful People Come!”
As in recent years, we will conclude the day with a Harvest Supper in the schoolroom downstairs. Arrangements and fuller details will be available in the near future.
At this time, we send greetings to everyone … especially to those who are feeling in need of a “lift” at the moment.
