Rainbows – a Reflection for Holy Week

Hello, once again. How are you coping with life under the restrictions which have been imposed due to COVID-19? If you’re in self-isolation for whatever reason I hope you are experiencing the support of family, friends and neighbours and I hope you have people you can contact if you need particular support.

If, like me, you are reasonably fit and active, perhaps you’re managing to spend a little more time than usual in the garden, and when you do, counting your blessings that you have a garden to enjoy. I hope too that you are managing to take your daily exercise in the beautiful countryside that lies on our doorstep.

It was on one of my exercise walks last week, whilst on the stretch of road between Aldwincle and Thorpe that I saw a fantastic rainbow. I didn’t find the legendary pot of gold, but the amazing sight of a full rainbow got me thinking about this symbol of hope which has been appearing in windows around our village communities in the last few weeks. One opposite the Rectory in Aldwincle is very hard to miss. But what does the rainbow mean?

Let’s hear first from the Book of Genesis.
