Major earthquake in my home country


If you pray, please say a prayer for our beautiful Cathedral city of Christchurch in New Zealand.
The devastation is all encompassing, there are a lot of deaths, the lovely Cathedral is in ruins.
This is our most English of cities and so beautiful upon the river Avon.
