Maundy Thursday

Thursday 5th April 2012
Spring returns
The oscillating weather begins to give me ideas for my Easter sermon with the mood from Palm Sunday swinging backwards and forwards. 
     Today was travel and worship: away from Bellingham for five and a half hours for a service (of just over an hour) in the Cathedral in Newcastle, the traditional gathering of all clergy of the diocese for a renewal of commitment to ministry and the Bishop's blessing of the oils (for baptism, chrism and the infirm) which we bring home to use in the coming year.
     After a bereavement visit, I was back in church for Evening Prayer, the evening Eucharist and Compline.
