On Sunday morning we had a double celebration at St. Edwards. It was one of the quarterly Arts sevices in which we celebrate different forms of art, this time it was scupture. but sunday was also the Baptism of Georgia Chesterfield, so what better piece of sculpture to celebrate than the beautiful 15h Century font in which she was to be christened?

Here are the sermons from the last two on the Edge Services; Fraser Watts, bringing his insights as a psychologist as well as his Christian Faith to ber on the nature of Evil and the ways we should confront it, and Malcolm Guite reflecting on the bombing of Hiroshima and the more general nuclear threat, under the title Lamentation and Hope
