Seven is a bunch of strips of cloth which I have rescued from a Lent installation at church. (Ye hay linking up the Christian seasons!!). We wrote names of people who had inspired us in our faith journeys and who'd paved the way and then weaved them into a panel of twigs for an installation hanging from the ceiling.
So adorning No. 7 bollard is a 'cloud of witnesses' or the people who've pointed the way to God for us. Like John - who we remembered t(hanks to Rod/Gerry and the Pilgrim House songs) as Johnno today in church. Johnno the baptiser. Pointing the way to God, paving the way for Jesus. Something tells me we'll need more than our bollards to point people to God this Christmas.
