Thought for the Week:

"Love our neighbours:  before doing anything else we must see our neighbours

 with our  imagination as well as our eyes;  that is to say, like artists we must see

not just their faces but the life behind and within their faces. 

Here it is the love that is the frame we see them in."     (Frederick Buechner)
