Today should be a time for quiet reflection and prayer as we join together in our own homes as ‘one church’.

The first verse of Samuel J Stone’s hymn written in 1866 I find appropriate for this moment in time, and for today, Good Friday.

“The Church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord;

She is his new creation by water and the word;

From heaven he came and sought her to be his holy Bride; 

With his own Blood he bought her, and for her life he died.”
