A busy couple of days...

On Friday:


  • I led the bible study at Coffee Plus
  • Visited Harry and Viv, talked to them and Steve B about prayer cards, gave them a card and said goodbye
  • Had lunch with Mum
  • Caught a train to Manchester and met up with Ian
  • Had a curry with Ian at the Punjab Tandoori Restaurant on the Curry Mile, excellent curry, wonderful place, I just love walking down that street!
  • Went to Steve's induction, really lovely service, a great positive start for Him and Rachel at Platt.


Well, that was Friday, I was up at 6am this morning and completely restructured our downstairs so that we could accomodate lots of visitors this evening! Also cleaned and hoovered and moved junk etc...Anyway managed to get everything done before setting off for Chester, which was a relief!! The service at the cathedral was typical of its type and the cathedral was really very cold considering that it was quite warm outside! I thought the sermon by Graham Dow was good, scriptural and relevant, not something guaranteed at such events!

Ian looked very pretty in his robes!



And there were a good number of people from church there to support Ian and Nikki as they were licensed, which was great, though I have definite evidence that there is a lack of variety in Licensing cards available:



Then this evening we have had 25 people round at the house to celebrate, though it wasn't a late night! Really tired now, but there's music group in the morning and lunch at mum's after, and of course, I still have lots of washing to do...

Very nice shot of Ian. Is he a Doctor of Divinity or something?

Goodness me, wouldn't that be something? In the Anglican Church, a blue scarf means a Reader. See http://www.chester.anglican.org/ministry/Reader/ for more. From behind, you'd see an apple blossom hood with white (synthetic) fur. That tells you, if you are in the know, that I have a BA from Liverpool Univ. No Doctor of Divinity. That would be scarlet cloth lined with black silk.

Your painting of the people running in to the church was admired muchly this morning at Mass as I used it as the front page on my powerpoint. People were impressed that it was a friend of mine who painted it *g* . I was proud.

And I am so glad Ian's Reading thingy went well, cool pic *g*

My painting at your mass - wow! I'm glad people liked it, hope it was a helpful image for them. Today I might get to that sunrise, but I'm also in the middle of producing lots of prayer cards for Harry and Viv....

So what is a prayer card then? And how come you need so many of them?

The prayer cards are about Harry and Viv who will now be in Tanzania, they have a photo of Harry and Viv, and useful info like their address, email and telephone number. They are for people to put somewhere handy, so that they have that information and remember to pray for them. They are about postcard size and I'm making 80 of them. I might post a sample for you to see!

Cool!!! We have traditionally had them for people who have died. I think it's a good idea to have them for the living. I guess there hasn't been an awful lot of missionaries going out from here, just the odd few to Brazil or Peru or some Pacific island.

I might just do that, though I think it is rather a limited market!!

Your paintings would make great holy cards or bookmarks. Paint some long, rectangular paintings *g*
