At the end of a storm
There's a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark

Thought for the week
Government guidance around non-essential contact, advices that public worship is suspended until further notice.  In the absence of church services here is a prayer:
God our saviour,
look on this wounded world
in pity and in power;
hold us fast to your promises of peace
won for us by your Son,
our Saviour Jesus Christ.
