This week's readings are from the NIV

Just once in a while I am led to images that speak to a reading so much it makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck. This was so with these images. A few years ago my family and I were exploring Philadelphia (the American one) and we stumbled across the most amazing piece of work. It is called "The Irish Memorial" and as you walk around it unfolds the story of the Irish potato famine and the exodus to America. The different facets of this memorial fitted the readings for today perfectly, please do use them - Mike.
