Innocence and beauty in someone’s faith is marvellous to see.
Jesus said “Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
“Marvellous” is another of our lent resources, the story of Neil Baldwin, a registered clown, a kit man for Stoke City, a longterm and unofficial but later recognised welcomer at Keel University and ‘good friend’ to anyone he met.
“I like the C of E, I like performance and I believe in God.” mused Baldwin.
Just Marvellous! If you watch anything this year, watch this film and be uplifted!
“Who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”

I didn’t ever know this young lady Anna, but she is a part of my formation.
Anna, as written by her friend ‘Fynn’ was a child of the early twentieth century who had a sponge for a mind and an intellect that found God everywhere.
Read about her in this blog from a month ago.
Anna knew and showed God on her outside and her inside. Easter, Easter, Easter….!

“I Will Not Take These Things For Granted” by Toad The Wet Sprocket
Toad The Wet Sprocket created wonderful and upbeat rock music on the US college circuit in the heyday of “alternative” pop and rock in the early 1990s.
“I Will Not Take These Things For Granted” reminds us to do just that, and be thankful for everything that this world and our lives have to offer – a timely reminder to look for the beauty in all things, even when life is at its most difficult.
