This Sunday we met at 10 am for the Eucharist. Father Stephen was the Celebrant, and in his sermon he referred to the fact that this Sunday is often referred to as 'Good Shepherd' Sunday. He started off by telling us something of the life of a shepherd as described by Thomas Hardy in Far From the Madding Crowd. Jesus describes himself as the Shepherd of his sheep, and this Sunday is traditionally one where people are asked to consider if they have a vocation to the priesthood, or indeed to any other form of service to God.
We prayed for the people of Nepal as they struggle to cope with the earthquake. The Choir sang Ave Verum Corpus in the setting by Charles Gounod. There was coffee after the service.

Next Sunday at our Family Service we are considering baptism, all are welcome, but particularly the newly or recently Baptized
