Our Daily Bread: 3 May 2020
During this time of ‘cocooning’ we may find our relationship with food has changed. Perhaps we spend more time thinking about where, when and how to get the food we need. Some items are scarce – we delight in the surprise of obtaining flour or yeast. We may have more time to cook with care. For those who don’t have the resources to feed themselves properly and for those who help them, this is a difficult time.

Easter Sunday 12 April 2020
Before we begin, gather around you a small selection of items that you find especially life giving and enhancing - photos of friends and family, a favourite picture or artefact, a gift from a special person, a beautiful shell or stone .... You now have before you some of your most significant possessions.

Quiet Space: 29 Mar 20
The story is told that the soon-to-be Pope Francis asked Pope Benedict, ‘Can you smoke while you pray?’  A shocked Benedict retorted, ‘Of course not’.  Francis then asked, ‘Well, can you pray while you smoke?’  The face of a reflective Benedict suggested he acknowledged a lesson learnt.
