The Church of the Good Shepherd

Here is the tiniest flavour of the beauty we are seeing…this is Lake Tekapo, with the ‘flour’ ie glacier dust, which causes the wildly lovely turquoise colour in the water. This is the ACTUAL colour: though when you see an enormous stretch of water as bright as this is, surrounded by mountains, it is so far beyond any adequate words to describe.

The little Church of the Good Shepherd (and remember this is the high country where young men run up mountains in caring for the Merinos which thrive on the coarse tussocky grass, so the Church’s dedication has wonderful resonances) stands on the edge of the Lake, and the full glory of God’s creation is displayed through the window above the altar.
