Guardian angels

by
02 November 2012

THE exhibition "Presence of Angels", in the Scottish Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd, in Edinburgh, proved so popular that the Rector, the Revd Dean Fostekew, decided to extend it for a third week. They were celebrating October as the month of Guardian Angels, and more than 150 of them filled the church. They ranged from pocket- to life-sized, and were designed by Carmen Foamete, a member of the congregation.

The Good Shepherd held a Festival of Spirituality and Peace in August, when people were invited into the church garden to experience it as a place of contemplation and prayer. Mr Fostekew believes that people who visited "Presence of Angels" encountered angels in many spiritual ways. He hopes that the exhibition was able to build on the same journey of prayer and spiritual renewal.
