A comfort and a challenge

The Gospel reading in Sunday's service tells part of Jesus' prayer for his disciples prior to leaving them and returning to his Father in heaven. It's both comforting and challenging to know that Jesus also prays for those who would follow him today. This is one of the themes of this week's sermon which can be found by clicking here or the 'Sermon Archive' link above.
Do you believe Jesus prays for you? What difference does that make to your life?

Guard duty

Given a tour of Otterburn camp today and met some of the MOD and Landmarc  staff. No military activity at present as its lambing time but some big exercises coming soon! Saw these two on the verge just by the entrance. Old hand and apprentice.
