It was the family service in church today. I don't go to church every week, but I do like the monthly family services as they always very inclusive of the children who attend - in fact, both my girls had a speaking part today!
Today is Candlemas, the day in which we turn from Christmas to look towards Lent and Easter, so the church hall was filled with light from candles of all sizes. We're still not able to go into the church itself as the roof is still under repair, but the services in the church hall always feel very friendly and inclusive. People smile a lot and there's always a good feeling about the place.
As part of the talk during the service, we were all given a small piece of card in the shape of a candle to remind us that we should let ourselves shine in the world. What a lovely thought that is!
