"As I was coming home from the prayer gathering, I had a picture of a dry stone wall. I could see the ‘odd’ shapes of the stones and how they fitted perfectly together to make a strong wall to be able to face the fiercest of weather and be a protection for whatever was on the lee side of it. I also felt that if ‘my stone’ was not there, there would be a gap and the wall would be weakened. It could possibly collapse!! I don’t feel that is me being arrogant but in humility knowing with confidence I have a place in the wall.
"I felt that for St James’ by the Park it was a picture of us all being of great importance, all different shapes but fitting together to make something strong and beautiful, for dry stone walls are so much more beautiful than a ‘bland’ brick wall. They can a bit rough and ready - as individuals within the church, we are not perfect, but all together…. Who knows!
