I hope you are keeping well this week.
This week, I wanted to take the opportunity to tell you about a little Church in rural England that I am very fond of.
It's called All Saints, in a little town called Leighton Buzzard. The church was built in the 13th century and the sit a place of worship for 1000 years.
Here's the link if you are interesting in finding out a little more about it:
This church is tucked away at the end of a high street, in a little farmers village about 1.5 hours north of London. It's beautiful. Sometimes I walk past it just to see the 180ft Spire and pause for a moment, and think that the place I am standing on has been a place of worship of our timeless God for about 1000 years.
There's even some ancient graffiti on the pillars inside!
This Church has seen so much history, so much change, so many challenges and it's still standing (it survived both world wars.) And that is only a small reflection of our God.
Our God has been constant and unchanging since before the creation of the universe. He does not become weary through trials, he does not give up on humanity despite our history. He is all-loving and always there. He was there long before this Church and will be here long after too. But, when I look at it, I personally still see a little of God's everlasting nature in this church... and I hope you do to!
