  1. The cool of the mission church is quite a lure with it so hot outside. Perhaps we can light a candle.

  2. OOOO. That may be a very good thing.

  3. As ever a heady mix of image and word Magical – that the photo is set in the room looking out to that beautiful tree and light makes me have more hope for the worshipers safe exit! (ps also mighty fine punning)
