On Tuesday 18th July, St Bride's held a lunchtime recital to raise funds for the British Red Cross London Fire Relief Fund to help the people of Grenfell Tower. Several wonderful musicians donated their time and talents for the event and a total of £502.26 was raised, all of which will go to the fund.

We are very grateful to Mine Doğantan and Helen Nelson, Jonatan Bougt, Constance Leung, and Nigel Blomiley for their generosity; all of whom have previously taken part in our free lunchtime recital series.

'Consider the lilies, how they grow.' (Matthew 6:28)

The Victorian writer John Ruskin once said 'flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity.' There is something about flowers which lifts us out of the ordinary and reminds us of the beauty of life. Flowers speak to and express all human emotions, including loss and sadness as well asw joy and celebration. To Jesus lilies where a symbol of beauty and abundance, of generosity and welcome. We rightly love flowers and the joy and comfort they bring. Who could you give a flower to today?

Lord God, in your bounty and goodness you have given us the beauty of flowers as a reminder of your love for your creation. May we give and receive the gift of flowers as a token of our gratitude for your abundant world. Amen.
