Dear Friends,

This weekend we are marking Candlemas - the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple. Its a feast where the words of Simeon that Jesus is "light to the nations" are symbolised by the lighting of candles. In my sermon I have used some of the special liturgy for this feast for a time of prayerful reflection. If you have a candle that you can light as you watch or read today's act of worship it may deepen your experience of the prayers. May Jesus, the light of the world, be reflected in our homes and in our lives in all that we do and say this week, God bless,
