April showers

Wednesday 11th April 2012
The North Tyne near Falstone
Much of the day was spent preparing for the Annual Parochial Church Meeting of St Cuthbert's Bellingham which took place in the evening.  There was a break in the afternoon for a drive to Falstone to prepare for a baby's baptism, talking it all over with the parents.  They are giving their son the opportunity to make an informed choice when he's old enough.  I'm glad that they will allow him to experience religion as well as sport and music and other activities, so that he has a chance to develop spiritually  as well as in other ways.  In the years to come he will be able to decide for himself whether he wants to continue with swimming or playing the clarinet or being confirmed as an adult Christian  --  which he couldn't easily understand without some background.
