Take Five

The Revd Chris Morley, a retired Methodist minister in our circuit, is publishing a daily video thought. He writes:

'I thought you might be interested in my new YouTube channel Take Five. Each daily thought is a suggestion for how each of us might grow spiritually and come closer to God by reflecting that day on a particular theme.

'So I'm inviting people to Take Five minutes each day to join me. I hope if you do, you will find it a contribution to the deepening of your faith during these strange days.'
