When I visited my daughter in Southwell last weekend I found this plaque on a nearby house. May be of interest to the pie/crumble lovers among you!
It reminds me of a question that someone asked in a talk I heard decades ago: how many seeds are there in an apple? And how many apples are there in a seed? Worth pondering!
One of the amazing things to come out of Holy Island are the illustrated Lindisfarne gospels dating from 700 and now in the British Museum (photos copyright British Museum). It probably took a number of monks years to hand colour them.
The Bible is still a special book all these centuries later. Open Doors started in 1955 by smuggling bibles into Eastern Europe. Even today it is a banned book in countries like North Korea yet so many are desperate to get one. And in other countries too. So what’s the link with Bramley apples? Any donation you make to 60@60 can help deliver bibles to those who want them as well as things like emergency aid and trauma counselling.
Finally, it has been a privilege today to spend time quietly seeking God in a beautiful place: the Pilgrims Way to the Island is the line of poles.
