Zetland Park Methodist Church
Zetland Park Methodist Church exists to rejoice in the
love of God. Who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
To this end, we are committed to building up a
fellowship of Christian love that embraces all ages,
and, through our prayer, property and our activity, to
serving the people of the locality in which we are set.
Ever since hearing my mother speak of the experience of
witnessing a total solar eclipse when she was 5 years
old I have wanted to share that same experience, so far
without a realistic opportunity presenting itself. For
Mum it was clearly a dramatic experience and despite
her young age the intensity of the memory never left
her - she was transformed by it! Alas, the one which
took place this month (March), which saw totality as
near as the Faroe Isles, did not come to my attention
until after all the affordable trips there had already
long been booked up! To have been "so near and yet so
far" from fulfilling a life-time ambition leaves one
feeling as gutted as I was about failing to find the
time to complete my MA two years ago. Alas
opportunities come and go ... passing you by if you
don't grab them with both hands. Since the next total
solar eclipse in Europe is not until 2026, a couple of
years after I have retired, we shall have to wait to
see if health and opportunity hold up! (...more)
