    On being held
     


    Exactly eight years ago this weekend Anna read these words at the opening of a jazz-worship event we'd created to mark The Annunciation. Janet Morley's words resonated with the idea of the child being held by the mother, in the mother, the mother being held by God, in God. This year it's Easter and Anna has a deeper understanding of all this. Herself a mother now to a treasured child who will not live long in this world, she writes movingly, of being held by baby Lydia, here.
