The pace hots up

Friday 25th May 2012
Back at the Rectory
Well, it's going to be an action-packed ten days.  There are two weddings next weekend (one on Saturday and one on Bank Holiday Monday) as well as two special services for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee (in addition to all the usual Sunday services); and in between I hope to join in the street party at Bellingham, the lunch at Kielder, the tea at Falstone and the hog roast at Ridsdale.
     That means that in the next six days I have to prepare for the events in which I have particular responsibility, writing two wedding sermons (which are always unique) and several addresses for the Jubilee services which range from a big parish event at Corsenside (with picnic)  to a simple half hour out of doors at Elsdon to a formal Evensong at Bellingham.
     A concerned message from an organist reminds me that I have to get on with preparing for this coming Sunday (the day after tomorrow) and agree hymns with him.
