Vicarage Notes

Thought for the month

At the recent Deanery Ascension day service, the preacher spoke of distractions, and his example brought back a childhood memory of mine when I was helping my mother make scrambled egg for tea.  Something distracted the 2 of us and we left the kitchen – rushing back a while later when we heard popping sounds.  The superheated egg was exploding like a mini volcano, with blobs of sticky stuff on the ceiling!  The lesson was learned.  The church has celebrated Ascension and Whitsun: days that remind us of the challenge to proclaim the good news God’s love throughout the world, the need to transform society and to work for justice, freedom and righteousness.  These huge concepts lie at the heart of a living faith, but the church often gets distracted with its own internal matters.  Lessons have still to be learned!

Around and about

May I add my thanks to Lilian and all the team who made the lamb and curry lunch such an enjoyable, delicious and sociable occasion – and to all who supported the event. It was a lovely afternoon.  We look forward to the Big One – the Scarecrow Weekend!

For those who enjoy Gospel singing, Brailes Church is hosting an evening with a Zimbabwean Choir at 7 p.m. on June 12th – all welcome.
