At the synode I fended some surreptitious messages concerning Bordeaux Church's first ever Thanksgiving Meal.
"I'll be late with the green beans".
"Is it OK for me to come?"
"Can I bring a friend?"
In the end there were about 25 people, some of whom we'd never met before, and it seemed to be a good time. Pat said, "There was no spiritual input, except I read a psalm of thanksgiving and someone prayed."
Well, anyway it was a good time, and on Sunday we ate left-over turkey, mash and sweetcorn.
