Last  week’s mystery photo.

The head of the lectern eagle at St John the Evangelist, Otterburn, ‘an exceptional piece of Victorian woodwork, made of oak and given to the church in 1863 by Thomas James of Otterburn Tower’

THE FLYING eagle is the symbol of John the Evangelist (see Revelation, ch 4, v 7) who proclaimed Christ as 'the Word of God' at the beginning of his Gospel. The flying eagle is thus a suitable emblem from which God's word is read, reaching (we hope) the ends of the earth. The eagle is also thought of as the bird which flies nearest to heaven.
