Pigeons honour our new Church

...by their presence

It was a nice surprise to see the pigeons visiting our new Church building today.

In actual fact they didn’t only visit us but they built a nest in the Bell Tower.

It is “traditional” for the pigeons to live in Bell Towers.

Thus, this discovery today signifies that our Bell Tower is a welcoming place for the winged creatures of God. It is certainly a good sign.

In the Song of Songs (2, 14) in the Old Testament we read the following sweet poem:

"O my pigeon, that art in the clefts of the rock,
In the covert of the steep place,
Let me see thy countenance,
Let me hear thy voice;
For sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely."
