Editor’s Message (Spring 2020)Ann_Braithwaite

I hope this finds you safe and well. We are all adjusting to a new lifestyle, though perhaps not yet a new routine. May our icons steady and stabilise us as we pray with and work on them during the Coronavirus pandemic. God is our rock. We live and work to His praise and glory.

We pray for those suffering with the virus, those grieving, the lonely and isolated, the medical staff, the key workers and for ourselves – for protection, for wisdom, for guidance, for compassion for others.

This situation gives many of us the gift of  ‘Time’, a real blessing in what was a hectic world – an opportunity to reflect on our spiritual life, our relationship with God.

There were many Icon Courses and Workshops planned but they are now ‘on hold’. Do check the BAI website and with the organisers, in a little while, as to whether they are still going to be able to run their Course.  There are also online courses.

With my prayers,
Ann (Braithwaite) Editor of BAI Review (Volunteer)
