Birthday gifts

Artwork developing during the service last Sunday morning - the image of Mary is copied from a window in St Nicolas' where the service took place.  It was our openness to God' s gifts which we were exploring - and Mary's birthday was the peg on which this was hung.

Mary's birthday

7th September is (almost) the traditional date for the birth of Jesus' mother, so God's gifts to her and us will be our theme on Sunday.  The picture is one taken almost exactly a year ago of an African pilgrim group singing its way round the church which is (one of) the traditional sites of her birth in Jerusalem.
