Sunday: Ordination of the Revd. David Short at St Alban's Abbey
|The sun shone, the choir sang and heaven rejoiced!|
Monday: Staff meeting, business meetings, Kid's Club, Home visits and (yeeha) PCC!
|4:28 - the quiet before the storm|
Tuesday: Tamworth Street Angels comes into being with various other meetings and engagements on this, a business and paperwork day.
|At last - a dream comes true and we're off!|
Wednesday: Funeral visits, Bike Ride to the Wall, Chaplaincy work
|Standards of the Royal Signals Association as we remember those who have served|
Thursday: Early communion service (more chairs needed yet again), drop-in, boat building (see I do take time off), Air Cadets.
|Final stage in the lining out complete!|
|A salute by the BBMF's Lancaster|
We will remember them
Followed by Kid's Club (now that's a sea change :-) )
|One of the many blessings that this church gives to the community|
Saturday: Provided PA for a church fete and then on to medicals and recruit training before finally ending the day (19:00) with a barbecue (even more time off!)
Of course there's loads of telephone calls, paperwork and ad hoc meetings that act as the filler in the normal daily run but, all in all, an absolutely fantastic and blessed week
And so - on to a great day with early communion, all-age service, Youth Alpha and BCP evensong to challenge, cause to worship and generally bless.
You know? I couldn't pay enough to be a minister and yet I get to do it for free.
How wonderful is that?
