Lindisfarne's St. Aidan Week

Aidan and Hilda Week runs from August 25-31. On 25th in the Open Gate chapel we celebrated the enshrining of Hild's remains. On Saint Aidan's Sunday Newcastle's Bishop Frank White led our St. Aidan service, followed by a procession along the bounds of the original Celtic monastery, led by Alice, a Northumbrian piper. In his sermon Bishop Frank observed (from the Gospel reading of the fisherman Simon Peter telling Jesus he was a sinful man after Jesus, who was not a fisherman, enabled them to make a big catch) 'Simon Peter saw that his small-mindedness was exposed. Aidan did not put limits on what God could do for the English. Let us cast off our small-mindedness'. He said Aidan opened up women's work and gave his best for the English and he asked 'What is God's best for us?' Send your replies direct to God please.
