Boat trip to Staffa - Philip and Sheila Morris
Another highlight of our week on the Isle of Mull was a boat trip to
Staffa, a beautiful uninhabited island, home to hundreds of sea birds -
I was able to film up close for a few seconds a puffin. However Staffa
is best known for its magnificent basalt columns, and famous for
Fingal's Cave, which has enthralled and inspired travellers for hundreds
of years, including the composer Mendelssohn. He composed his Hebridean
Overture, better known as Fingal's Cave Overture, after a visit he made
to Staffa in 1830 - and so we use it as the soundtrack to this video.
Pasg Hapus! I hope you have a wonderful Easter Monday with all the Bank Holidays thrills.
I am delighted to have Sheila and Philip's boat trip to share with you today and as always we are so grateful to them both. We shall be with them again this week on their usual Friday slot and our normal pattern.
Emerging from a cold tomb
All the truth, majesty and creativity of a living God
Transforming a broken heart
Making a quiet return, in a still and sorrowful garden
The grave stone rolled away, to release redemptive love
Jesus resurrected and restored
Comforts a weeping woman
Speaks with travellers on a journey
Meets with his faithful friends
And they bow down before Christ alive
And acknowledged that the saviour has arrived
That the word of God has come alive
And that the extraordinary transformation of heaven and earth
