A day of marvels

Well we sorted out why we can no longer put journeys on Catrin's tram id-card. It has to be reactivated every year at the office. This is a job for Friday morning.

Then we had folks come for lunch. I ask you, how many women do you know who can feed 8 people with three sausages, a bit of cucumber, a melon and a dollop of ice-cream ?

I love introducing people to one another (the best is introducing people to Jesus) so it was great to introduce the Harris' from Swansea and Neath and also to introduce them all to Andrew from NornIreland. We talked about France, the gospel, stuff, books, stuff, Andrew's college, Ted Donnelly. You know.  One book we talked about is "The Kingdom in the Republic", which I must order properly from Amazon.

Quick break for trombone lesson - Five people and their trombones rehearsing in a large pantry. The Black Hole of Calcutta sprang to mind. ( Imagine the Black Hole of Calcutta with trombones....) Very glad I can still do this this year ! Poor Thomas has some very challenging parts to play for orchestra. "C'est pourqouoi il faut qu'Alan vienne m'aider". Dans tes rêves, Thomas, pas possible.

Then prayer meeting which had a record attendance, and two people I thought would be there were not ! I learned that I am in charge of the preaching workshops, which will start in November. Daunted and excited.
