Good Friday

Because I couldn't bear the thought of three yelling children at a cross vigil in the town centre we went to Evesham yesterday, where a special weekend was being organised by the Northumbria Christian community. It was awesome. We didn't do very much, but we prayed the stations of the cross and had some meditative time out in the abbey. I really love the reflectiveness of their approach to God. I have decided to start using the Northumbrian prayer offices as part of my devotional time, and perhaps for family devotions as well. You can find out more about the Northumbrian community on their website.
If you go on the downloads section you can listen to some lovely celtic worship songs.
Thinking that we might try to get our Sun(spit) holiday in Berwick upon Tweed now and visit some of the ancient celtic worship sites.

Hi Jo

Very nice post - loved the picture too.

I like informal churches best but sometimes I just crave tradition in bucketfulls.

Have a wonderful Easter
