Worship by the Waves 2.2.24

Today,  2nd February is a special day in the Christian calendar called Candlemas.  Some children helped to tell the story of when  Mary and Joseph took Jesus to the Temple where they met a very old man called Simeon.  Simeon was a good man and he seemed to be waiting for the baby Jesus, even expecting him.  He took Jesus very gently into his arms and said that Jesus was going to be a very special person. He was going to be like a bright light shining in the world. Then he blessed the baby and gave him back to his mother and father.  Mary and Joseph were amazed by what Simeon had said and wondered what the wise old man's words could mean.
We said a prayer and finished by singing 'This Little Light of Mine'.
