Another funeral

Tuesday 13th March 2012
St Peter's Falstone
It  was standing room only for today's funeral. He loved visting churches, fascinated by their history.  But, of course, they're not just places of the past.  They're also places of the future and, on a day like this, places of the present when we focus on a life which we offer to God in thanksgiving in this "place where prayer has been valid" (to use T.S.Eliot's phrase)  --  our real prayers, our conversations with God, our reaching out to the divine, our recognising God's love in our lives.
