Discover & explore: Love

This week's Discover & explore service at St Stephen Walbrook explored the theme of Love. The service was led by Sally Muggeridge and featured the Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields singing 'Set me as a Seal' by William Walton, 'Dieu, qu'il la fait bon regarder!' by Claude Debussey, 'Rise up, my Love' by Healey Willan and 'A New Commandment' by Thomas Tallis

Sally spoke about Julian of Norwich who said in her 'Revelations of Divine Love' that our soul is naturally rooted in God in endless love.

Sally also chose for this service 'The Magic of Love' by Helen Steiner Rice:

'Love is like Magic and it always will be,
For Love still remains Life's Sweet Mystery!
Love works in ways that are wondrous and strange
And there's Nothing in Life that Love cannot change!
Love can transform the most common place
Into beauty and splendor and sweetness and grace!
Love is unselfish, understanding and kind,
For it sees with its Heart and not with its Mind
Love gives and forgives, there is nothing too much
For Love to heal with its Magic Touch!
Love is the language that every heart speaks,
For Love is the one thing that every heart seeks!

The next Discover & explore service is on Monday 29th February at 1.10pm. The theme will be Dreams.
