These ducks and hens were quite happy to mix freely in a gardening centre yesterday. It has no need to worry about slugs with this lot around!

'It seems to have become increasingly acceptable to state that religion has no part to play in public life and that those with religious faith should keep their views to themselves.' ~Nuala O'Loan

Our faith is like a little stream. On its own it may seem insignificant but every stream has its own unique energy. It will soon link up with other streams, gathering momentum and a sense of purpose. No one can stop the flow of a stream. You can build a dam to stop it but the stream will fill, back up and flow over it. Its ultimate destination is the sea and nothing can stop it on its journey. The same goes with the gift of faith and what we believe in. It is something precious and unique. It can't be hidden or swept into some corner. It has an energy that drives it forward. It helps us on the journey of life to find meaning and fulfilment. It never does a solo run but joins and links up with people who share the same vision and hope. This week marks Mission week which is always set aside during the third week of October, to celebrate many different faith stories across the world. Like streams and rivers the variety and number is breath taking. But they all flow into the one great ocean, that of an eternal loving God.
