St Lucia - saint of light!

St Lucia is patron saint of Dembleby and of only one other church in England - Upton Magna near Shrewsbury. It was the 149th anniversary of the consecration of the church on 21 January 2016, so we had a special service. St Lucia (whose name means light) wore a traditional crown of lights and we all took candles out from the church to the churchyard, representing Jesus Christ the light of the world.

What's in a blessing?

At the end of school assemblies, I usually give the children (and the staff) a blessing. One day some years ago I asked the children what they thought a blessing was. One girl said 'It's Jesus sending us his love' - so apt and so well put. And so today, the Feast of the Epiphany, when we remember the Wise Men coming to give their gifts to Jesus, we remember that he - always - sends us his love. Even when our love for him is not up to the standard of the Wise Men's gold, frankincense and myrrh.
