The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord; he is their stronghold in time of trouble. The Lord helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in him. (Psalm 37:39-40, NIV))
Following God can be hard, or at least we can wonder why we do it. We see around us people doing wrong and profiting from it. Nothing seems to happen to them, while we struggle to do what is right and receive no reward. That is the complaint of Psalm 37. In the same psalm, however, we are shown something of the true picture - that one day all wrongs will be righted, and all justice will be carried out.
You would be very welcome to join us at our 10:30am service in St Andrew, Cuffley, or at 8:30am for a service of Holy Communion in St Thomas, Northaw, this Sunday, as we look together at Psalm 37.
We are pleased to welcome Fred and Arthur Johnston and their parents and godparents for their baptisms in St Andrew this Sunday morning.

The parish is applying for a faculty to install cavity wall insulation in St Andrew. This is part of making the main body of the church more useable, and helping to reduce the heating costs. There will be no change to either the exterior or interior of the building. The public notice is available on the website.
As well as our prayers, there are various appeals raising funds to support those fleeing the conflict and those who cannot leave. Two that you might like to consider are:
The Diocese of St Albans also has some details on some ways we can help support Ukraine.
We are also able to support the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain via the Foodbank. More details of what they are collecting for and what they need are available on our [website][https://norcuff.com/ukraine].
