Day is done

Well, day is done. All went off well with the Affirming Catholicism service. It was certainly the busiest event that they have had recently. My early fears that people would not turn up to something in the middle of the summer came to nothing. The church was packed and it was standing room o­nly during the service itself. It was particularly good that some people came from the surrounding area following a press story in the local paper. I've no doubt that having +Richard Holloway as the preacher was a big attraction to many.

The choir sang well (Gounod in C), the servers served, the caterers catered and we sang so well that the sun came out.

Bishop Richard's sermon certainly went down a bundle with the crowd and he went back into the church for half an hour's stand up theology before leaving.
