Dear Incarnation friends
Don’t you love the fact that Eastertide is longer than Lent? This season of Alleluias and rejoicing…. so much delight in the resurrection and the promise of the Holy Spirit. But then I find myself almost standing on tiptoe to stretch towards Pentecost. The rhythm of the liturgical calendar taking us gently and inexorably forward creating a beautiful tension between past and future.
But for now - the delight of being right here. Today. The sun is breaking through. The air is heavy with the scent of wisteria at the end of our street. And of course there is pollen everywhere!
One of the lovely things about anticipating seasons is the chance to get some play dates on your calendar… I would love to suggest you ‘save the date’ for some of the fun things we have coming up in the next few months… Take a look. Savour. And note on your calendars!
Coming up (and who to contact for more details!)
