Thought for the week

The rainbow is a sign of God’s love for us and the promise to care for us. It is used as a symbol of Peace in some places and of equality in others. As we rejoice in the diversity of creatures saved in the ark we reflect on the wondrous diversity of the human race and pray that we might live in harmony.
