Thanks be to God

St Cuthbert's Bellingham: east window
How apt for me that below the image of Christ on the cross, this window shows Jesus healing a blind man.  (The other two figures are St Mary on the left and St John on the right.)
     [See "Thought for the..." page]
     I attended the 9.30 Eucharist as the ideal time to give thanks.  The rest of the day involved an early afternoon meeting at Falstone for planning with representatives of Churches Together in Falstone and Kielder, the 4 o'clock hour's Lent group in Bellingham led this week by the Methodist minister, and a visit to a family whose six-year-old daughter wishes to be baptised.  When I asked her why she wanted this, her face lit up as she said "I want to be part of Jesus".
