Something to Think About

Evesham Editorial 14th Jun, 2020

I HAVE been busy making a number of items for my model garden railway during the last few weeks.

One of them is a Gantry two-arm signal that I have positioned so it can be viewed from the sitting room window.

It looks very impressive with the one arm raised in the ‘go’ position and the other in ‘red for danger’.

It reminds me of my father who was a main line railway signalman controlling four tracks. Twice a day, amongst many others, there would be the famous ‘Thames Clyde Express’ speeding through both to north and south.

With the amount of trains, he had to be totally conversant with the rules and regulations and always be aware so that all the trains passed through his section safely.

The New Testament of the Bible with the teachings of Jesus Christ and afterwards by Peter, Paul and the other disciples helps us to know when the ‘signal’ is at ‘red’ for stop or ‘green’ for go.

This is especially essential in these uncertain days in which we find ourselves today.

There are so many ‘voices’ clamouring for our attention, all advising us to do it their way.

It is hoped that soon churches may be open again for private prayer, so that we can again sit in the quietness and ask God for his advice for our lives.
