I am Susan Greenwood, minister of Nunthorpe Methodist church for the last 10 years.
I feel it's been a privilege to be part of the loving and caring church family here at Nunthorpe.
The family is made up of women and men, boys and girls of all ages who worship, witness and enjoy the Christian life together. Every one is welcome to be part of our church family.
Please come along and share with us as we all grow closer to Jesus as his followers. We have many activities in addition to worship including House Groups, Bible Studies, Prayer and Singing groups. So please come along either to worship or to one of our groups.
New school uniforms need them.
Scouting and Guiding need them.
Hospitals and Nursing Homes need them.
Parcels and Letters need them.
Your favourite jar of jam needs them. . .
Have you guessed yet what I'm referring to?
Well, Wikipedia says this about them: They can be a piece of paper, plastic, film, cloth, metal or other material affixed to a container or product, on which is written or printed information or symbols about the product or item. Information printed directly on a container can also be considered . . . LABELING!
There has been quite a lot in the media recently about labeling -

Last week we saw an outpouring of horror following the death in Northern Ireland of a 29 year old journalist -
One person speaking of her said: " She was a smart, strong-
Labels meant nothing to her -
We are made in the image of God -
As Christians, we don't need to wear a label, we belong to Jesus Christ, who taught us to love our neighbour -
Must go -
God Bless you and thank you for being unique!
With Much Love,
