A full range!
Monday 23rd April 2012
Every stage of life came up today: 9 o'clock was a call from a young mother bringing the form relating to a baby's baptism (christneing). At 11.00 a.m. I took a funeral at Otterburn followed by burial in the churchyard. There was time for lunch at the Rectory before a couple came at 2 o'clock for wedding preparation. After a little while at my desk I set off for Rochester to prepare a young girl for Confirmation. Then it was Evening Prayer in Bellingham church and away to chair the Annual Parochial Church Meeting of the parish of Falstone with Greystead and Thorneyburn, which was a constructive meeting that ended with a sociable light supper.
