At today’s service we had reports from those who attended the Bristol Men’s convention yesterday, and news from John Ikin’s induction at Union Chapel Bath. We also had the joy of fellowship with Stuart and Chew Chern Morgan of Crossings Church, Singapore. On a sadder note we had to say farewell to Jack, who has been on work experience with us this week. His visit has been a real help.
In the evening I took the reading that Hugh Palmer, Rector of All Soul’s Langham Place, used as the basis for his talk at the the Convention yesterday, then used my notes of his two messages to help us prepare for our communion here. You can hear my message here, but the credit is his. The reading is John 14:15-31, and the message is entitled Sweet Communion.
