ST. MARY'S MATTERS

Dear Friends

Wishing you a very happy New Year from the whole team at St. Mary's!

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
    for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
    through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
    forever.


Psalm 23:1-6

RESOURCE OF THE WEEK

12 Ways Your Phone is Changing You by Tony Reinke

The New Year is traditionally a time for making resolutions, stopping bad habits and adopting better ones.

In "12 Ways Your Phone is Changing You", Tony Reinke identifies twelve potent ways our smartphones have changed our lives—for good and ill. Reinke calls us to cultivate healthy habits for smartphone use, encouraging us to be grateful for technological advance, develop skills to maximise the blessing that we (and others) can receive through our phones, and grow in the wisdom we need to avoid the many pitfalls that exist with such a powerful tool.
