No Greater Love

Stained glass church windows .. I haven't seen these in real life, yet I'm in awe! Feeling very grateful to Bishop Matthew Gunter, Episcopal Diocese of Fond du Lac /northeast and northcentral Wisconsin USA, who shared the first photo on Facebook. I asked permission to use it and he kindly provided me with photos of... Continue Reading →

Local Church

Love this church which sits in the residential area further along our street. The two other churches in town are near the shops. I feel more connection with this one, abiding with us in our neighbourhood. Its simple, white, classic style feels welcoming and familiar. Photos taken in autumn, 06 May. Tapanui, West Otago, New...

I moved on around the corner and, still on the church property, found a very pretty holly bush with bright berries and variegated foliage. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand. Photos taken 06 May 2021. I wondered... Continue Reading →

Festive in Dunedin

Christmas Day in Dunedin offered a fine morning and then the weather deteriorated in the afternoon. Fortunately we headed out to the beach early and got to visit the Botanic Gardens before wet weather came in. Last night we attended a beautiful Christmas Eve service at Knox Church with lots of candles and music and... Continue Reading →

Confronting Covid

In Dunedin on Sunday 01 November we'd attended Knox Church (Presbyterian) in the morning and as we were leaving I caught a glimpse of palm tree flowers in the garden. This is what we saw once we'd found our way to the palm which, by the way, isn't native. Photos taken by Nigel. - and... Continue Reading →

My Cathedral

Kiss of the sun for pardon. Song of the birds for mirth. You’re closer to God’s heart in a garden than any place else on earth. – Dorothy Frances Gurney When I was a kid my older brother, already married/in his own home, would sometimes play My Cathedral /Jim Reeves on a Sunday morning. YouTube:... Continue Reading →

The Way of Love

The Way of Love ain't easy [pause]. Love isn't warm fuzzies, rosy specs and feet barely touching the ground. Love's more than sympathy, it's grounded and sacrificial. I was touched by this account of two women from the Episcopal Church who were showing kindness to protesters on the patio of St. John’s Episcopal Church in... Continue Reading →

Catholic Church in Gore

Church of the Blessed Sacrament This church with surprisingly different architecture to what you'd expect down here in the south is opposite the Council offices on Ardwick Street in Gore, Southland, New Zealand. Nigel pulled in by the church to return some books to the library and I took the opportunity to get some photos,... Continue Reading →
