Another village where we've been distributing copies of The Signpost magazine is Abernethy.
Abernethy was home to Mr Isaac Ewan who became a Christian while serving as a soldier in WW1. He was associated with a small church in the village and travelled widely throughout the British Isles preaching and teaching prior to his death in 1968.
He wrote many poems and hymns which have been published in several books. Below are a couple of them which are particularly thought-provoking.
We started to distribute our magazine, The Signpost, in Bridge of Earn this week.
For several years now we've held a well-attended Christmas Carol Service in the village - I wonder if it'll be possible this year?
It was nice to bump into a few familiar faces on our rounds, and also to see this wooden cross. The cross is at the centre of the good news that we love to share...
"He (Jesus) Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness." 1 Peter 2:24
We've been really missing our monthly visits to several care homes across the city and beyond during the COVID crisis, but have continued to pray for the staff and residents throughout.
It was lovely to receive some nice feedback from our friends at Glenhelenbank Care Home in Luncarty today after they watched a short service we recorded onto DVD for them.
After 5 months we finally made it back out to Thimblerow Car Park tonight with the Good News Trailer.
It was great to see some familiar faces, and some new ones too!
We'll be there every Monday from now on - 7.30-8.00pm, distributing food and toiletries to anyone in need of them. Eventually we'll get back to serving hot drinks too.
Our Good News Soup Kitchen is restarting after a long break due to COVID19 related restrictions.
We'll be back up and running from Monday 31st August, 7.30-8.00pm every Monday evening in Thimblerow Car Park, Perth (accross from St Catherine's Square)
We'll be distributing bags of groceries and toiletry packs and there'll be an opportunity to chat to some friendly faces.
Initially we won't be serving hot drinks, but we hope to restart that soon too.
We will be encouraging social distancing in line with current Government guidance.
Everyone is welcome.

It was a typical Scottish summer day as we got soaked whilst starting our distribution of our new magazine 'The Signpost' in the village of Methven!
We've recently added lots of videos to the site - you can find them here.
Some of the videos simply explain the good news message of the Bible, whilst others teach what the Bible says regarding other topical subjects. We've also got some interesting interviews with people about how they became Christians and how their faith has shaped their lives.
We will update these videos on a regular basis, but you can also find the full library of videos on the Perth Gospel Hall YouTube channel. By subscribing to the channel you can receive notifications when new videos are added each week.
Interested in learning more about the Bible? Come and join us for an hour of Bible teaching at 7.30pm every Friday night in the recently refurbished Comrie Rural Hall on Nurses' Lane (also known as the WRI Hall).
The Bible teaching is given by Mr Jack Hay who lives in the village but has spent many years travelling to various parts of the world to preach and teach the Word of God. Refreshments are served afterwards and everyone is made very welcome.
Feel free to get in touch if you'd like more details.
