FOCUS NEWSLETTER.  The next edition of Focus will be a Spring/Summer edition and the deadline for contributions is Thursday 13th May.  Our special topic this time will be 'Something positive from the last year'.  Even though the year has been tough we may have found unexpected positive things in our lives.  What could you share on that topic?  Just a sentence or two is fine or something longer.  Also please think of other items like articles, reflections, poems, jokes, photos (with permission), etc.  We will continue with book reviews, so how about sending a short review of a book you have recently read?  Contributions to Helen at focus@teddingtonmethodistchurch.org.uk.  Thank you
