|After the service at St Peter's Falstone|
Anyway, the 9.30 Parish Communion at Bellingham and the 11 o'clock one at Falstone went ahead more or less normally, as well as 3 o'clock STARS for the under-5's with their parents.
Then two couples who were booked in for marriage preparation telephoned to postpone because of travelling difficulties.
Incidentally, the picture of Falstone church above is a colour photograph though it may not look it. As it happens, it's rather suitable for today's Gospel reading which was about Jesus turning water into wine when the drink ran out at a wedding reception. Water into wine, black and white into colour, sorrow into joy -- all these, like the whole of Jesus' ministry, are signs of the exuberant, creative power of God.
