Thought for the Week 10 March

Mothers Union Australia Season of Lent

Love will be our Lenten calling Love to shake and shatter sin, Waking every closed, cold spirit, Stirring new life deep within,

Till the quickened heart remembers

What our Easter birth can mean.                      TiS 684 Picardy
