Do You like It?

Most of the Halls of Residence of the University of Leicester are in our parish. And at the back of them, running down to the London road, are the University’s Botanical Gardens. These are well worth a visit at any time of the year, but of special interest at present is the display of sculptures that are set out in them.

They are well worth a visit – a variety of different pieces of Modern Art. Inevitably, we will all prefer some more than others. It’s a matter of personal preference. But it’s good to see the range.

Perhaps, that’s a bit like Church Music. In St Paul’s, we try to have a variety, from songs led with guitars and drums, to traditional hymns, led by the organ. Inevitably, just as with art, some people will prefer particular styles. But, unlike us, God is pleased to hear our worship, whatever our style may be.
