This morning on a warm summer's day we met at 10 am for Mattins. The readings today, from the King James version,  told the stories of Abram and Sarah meeting the three men/angels in the desert, and Mary and Martha discussing their roles with Our Lord. In his sermon Father Stephen discussed the role of hospitality in the Bible stories and in our present day life in the Church, we strive to welcome without over whelming! The story of Mary and Martha is interpreted differently than it used to be, we now see both their roles as valuable, but draw from it that we must not become so focused on tasks that we loose our spiritual connection to the Lord.

The Choir sang the Jubilate Deo in the setting by C V Stanford and The Anthem' Jesu Joy of  Man's Desiring'  setting by J S Bach.
There was coffee after the Service
