A number of years ago I had the privilege and joy of witnessing the Northern Lights on Iona, an island in the Inner Hebrides in Scotland. It is truly an amazing sight as lights dance across the night sky. There are so many things that we experience through our eyes, most of which we take for granted. But what a blessing to be able to see the wonders of the world around us, the faces of our loved ones. How different it would be if we couldn't. It's estimated that 2 million people in the UK live with some kind of sight loss. 360,000 are registered with their local authority as blind or partially sighted. Far more are affected in developing countries around the world. 90% of visually impaired people live in low-income settings. Losing your sight isn't just about not being able to see. it can reduce your independence and make you more vulnerable.It can also of course lead you - like Stevie Wonder - to discover life in other ways. Let us thank God for the blessing of sight and for those who have sight loss yet bring so much to our world.

For the last few years Churches Together in Didcot and District have been running a foodbank just off the Broadway (access behind TRAIN and No Two Things). It's still difficult to comprehend that there are individuals and families in our community who rely on this emergency resource. Some sessions in recent weeks have seen as many as 35 - 40 people using the foodbank. If anything demand is increasing rather than diminishing. Most of us take it for granted that we will have enough to eat for ourselves and our families but many struggle to find enough for the basic necessities. During Lent the congregation at All Saints' are collecting toiletries, toilet rolls, nappies etc. for the foodbank. If you can't afford food, you're unlikely to be able to afford those things. As you eat your meals each day, perhaps you can take time to thank God for his blessing of food but also pray for those who can't take it for granted. And why not drop some food or other basic stuff round to the foodbank.......

A sign of blessing in the Old Testament is God's gift of children. But it's not just those of us who have children that are blessed by them. China is facing a demographic crisis. In 1979 the Chinese government made it illegal for couples to have more than one child in an attempt to reduce the population. Thirty years later they are reaping the fruit of that policy decision as the population ages and there are too few younger people to provide the wealth and care that is needed for the whole population. The policy began to be phased out in 2015 but it now seems that couples are making the choice to have smaller families. But China isn't alone in this as most Western countries have significantly aging populations that depend for their pension on the wealth produced by the younger generations. Let us treasure our children and young people, not just for the resource that they provide, but for the energy and joy that they can bring to all our lives just as our Sunday School do.

One of the blessings of belonging to All Saints' is that we have a very mixed congregation and in that mix you'll find a number of scientists from all kinds of different disciplines - not surprisingly living in Didcot. A common misconception today is that you can't be a scientist and have faith. Yet speak to our scientists and they'll tell you differently. Whether they explore the very edges of our knowledge in theoretical physics or explore the mystery of the human body, it is another way in which they encounter the mystery that is God. Faith can be found as much in the uncertainties of the boundaries of knowledge as it can be in the familiar and known. God invites us to an adventure of discovery through which he can give us more blessings. So let's pray for our scientists and the amazing work in which they're involved and pray that their discoveries might bless our world. If you're interested in knowing more, why not check out the science and faith group at St. Matthew's Harwell. http://www.harwellandchiltonchurches.org.uk/Groups/262294/Science_and_Faith.aspx
