Our 10'oclock service today was Parrish Eucharist. A sunny, but still chilly morning saw a good congregation summoned to the service by the bell, and joining in with some well known hymns. Father Stephen told us a sad story from early in his ministry, which illustrated the Gospel story from St John, where Jesus tells of his coming glory at the lowest moment just before his arrest. Whatever our sadness Christ is with us. The Choir sang 'Blessed be the God and Father' words from 1 Peter, music by Samuel Sebastian Wesley. The anthem asks us to 'Love one another with a pure heart fervently'. The service was followed by coffee.
