Admire the view
So we find ourselves - a large representative number of St Thomas’ parish - enjoying the environment God has given us. The secular world is being wakened – our children taking the lead – to the importance of taking good care of it. If you go to Israel you will find that a mass celebrated on the shores of the sea of Galilee is the closest you come to the Jesus of Nazareth. Away from the bustle, from the strident conflicts of Jerusalem and Judea you enjoy the calm scenery and wildlife. Today we meet Jesus in the midst of his natural world. The encounter with him continues in the picnic and the party, in the same setting.
