soul moments. Today the Church marks the Presentation of Christ in the Temple (Candlemas), where Simeon proclaims the child Jesus as a light of hope for all.

At some point this week stop and watch a candle burn. Not just watch but really watch for five minutes. While you are watching the candle flame, try not to think about things and if you do, just name them as a 'thought' and go back to concentrating on the flame. These small stilling moments are soul moments they are good for our wellbeing.

"STOP, WATCH, REALLY WATCH, wellbeing"

Prayer for the Nation:

Caring God, we bring before you all those who bring healing and care within and beyond the NHS. We give thanks for their service and pray that they would be encouraged particularly when things feel hopeless. Furthermore we pray that in the aftermath, the carers will be cared for. Amen.

Saturday 6th February

Our steps are made firm by the Lord,
when he delights in our way;
though we stumble, we shall not fall headlong,
for the Lord holds us by the hand.

(Psalm 37:23-24)

Due to life storms, sometimes it does not feel that way.
