SATURDAY REFLECTION – 20 APRIL

Dear Friends, The attachments today remain on the Easter theme.  Susan Kambalu uses the natural growing cycle in what she writes rather effectively I think – it is the time of the year when we cannot be unaware of being surrounded by growth in nature.   Gerry Hughes reminds us of the inextricable link between…

SATURDAY REFLECTION – 6 APRIL

Dear Friends, We hope that Easter week has been a good time for you & that you have been able to ‘feast’ a bit rather than ‘fast’! (whatever those words ‘fasting’ & ‘feasting’ mean for you – not necessarily just food & drink!) We aim to share several Easter reflections with you over the next…
