Linda led us in a service which looked at freedoms mentioning both our own personal abilities to roam, even with the covid restrictions and areas such as Nigeria where Christians are persecuted openly. We recited the Psalm of David (psalm 29) and this related neatly to Linda recounting the story of how Michelangelo's statue of David was carved from a block of marble, which had been hewn over 40 years previous. After many artists failing to be inspired enough to carve the block Michelangelo described his work of David as releasing the "angel from within". The freedom of the birds was used to symbolise Gods power and Linda presented all the congregation with a bird of their own complete with a bible verse.
