|Prayer requests on the star tree in St Aidan's church, Thorneyburn|
Yesterday, Epiphany, , the twenty children taking part in St Aidan's after-school club also wrote prayer requests on stars (as we thought about the star guiding the Wise Men to Jesus). These were to be added to the tree in church.
When I went into Thorneyburn church to photograph the tree, the churchwarden and I found that the undertaker had left his smart clothes there when he changed into his overalls to fill in the grave. Today he called on me to arrange a funeral somewhere else; so I lent him a torch to enable him to go to St Aidan's after dark and retrieve his funeral wear!
