Shoulder to Shoulder
To modern ears, these words of Jesus – “my yoke is easy” – sound strange. An older generation would know that a “yoke” was a wooden crossbar placed across the shoulders of two beasts of burden to enable them to pull heavy loads effectively, sharing the strain.
Slaves were likewise yoked together to carry loads, work the oars of a ship or raise buildings.
Against this background, Jesus promises that the effort of living in his ways will not be too heavy for us, will not enslave or crush us. In fact, it will be quite the opposite because he himself will be our shoulder-to-shoulder co- . . –worker. He will “do the heavy lifting” and take the hardest strain of the load or burden we carry

Tax Rebate : Thank You
A big `Thank You` to parishioners who have already returned the completed CHY3 Cert form, giving permission to the parish to claim a tax rebate on their contributions in 2013/14/15.
A gentle reminder to others who may have forgotten to do so, to return the forms soon.
(Of course, if you were not liable for tax in all three years, there is no need to return the form.)
