Letter from Rev’d Claire Robertson – August 2023

Dear Friends,

My youthful memories of August always take me back to North Wales. My sister, brother, parents and I, with our miniature dachshund, Fred, would spend two weeks there each August, in a cottage with a smallholding. The owners of the cottage spent the summer in their caravan in the garden, on hand to look after the small herd of dairy cows they kept. Bottled milk from the cows could be collected each morning from a nearby centre. Our holiday was very relaxed: apart from checking the weather, so that we could choose a suitable day to walk up Mount Snowden, nothing was planned until the actual day.

The rest of the year, evenings and weekends were packed with music activities and piano practise that I loved. However, for those two weeks, every August, there was no music and no schedule. It was a complete break for all of us from our usual routines. I always had a great time on these holidays, with plenty of time for just pondering, and I came home feeling really relaxed and refreshed, ready for the start of the next academic year.

15th August marks the Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus. Mary was someone who from her youth perfected the art of pondering. We are told by St Luke that when the Angel Gabriel greeted her to tell her she had found favour with God she pondered what his words meant and that after the visit of the shepherds at Jesus’ birth “she treasured their words and pondered them in her heart”.

This August, may we all have time to ponder and treasure the moments of grace we experience this summer and be refreshed for the start of September with all the new experiences that will bring.

With blessings for a wonderful summer,
