A note from Wild Goose
 

 

 

We hope you all had a happy Easter and that spring has arrived wherever you live. (It’s doubtful whether it has reached Scotland yet!)

This time we have a new download of short readings for a month to celebrate springtime. And there’s also a reminder of some of our material relating to the resurrection and ascension.
