To the furthest reaches of the parishes

Thursday 15th December 2016
To the north-western extremity of my parishes, about twenty miles up the valley  for a burial of ashes in the mists of Kielder churchyard (behind the yew trees).
     The morning had been in Bellingham with a Communion service and then the Middle School Carol Service for 130 children and ten adults.  Some excellent reading and singing.

  1. Of course 20 miles is a long way there. Some of our priests and pastors can travel 200km in a day just to service three churches. (Dad used to fill in when they couldn't make it, as did the local bank manager and the doctor.)
