Picking up comments

Just to pick up a few comments from elsewhere that need to be answered.

  • Jenny Berrie – of course I remember you. Many a happy knitting class in the chaplaincy in Stirling. Now, remember all I told you: knit one unto another, perl one unto another.
  • Robin asked why we moved John the Baptist to Monday and did not keep it on Sunday. Well, we could have kept it on the Sunday, but we do tend to follow the SEC pattern of moving Feast Days to the next available day if there is a clash. In the SEC calendar, a Sunday in June does take precedence over the Birth of the Baptist. So, unless there was good local reason, for example, being in a church dedicated to the Baptist, I would usually follow the calendar and move the Festival to the Monday.
  • Kimberly has been asking such interesting questions on her blog. Someone asked me what we were doing about the sermon discussion group this week, as the sermon on Sunday will be during the liturgy of the word at 0810, whilst the 1030 service is another baptism. (I’ve never worked in a congregation that is so fruitful). The answer is, that we will have a discussion about Kimberly’s questions after the 1030. Focussing on the first 2.
  • Kennedy asked when the Scottish Episcopal Church would be given the chance to vote on the proposal that the Primates be made an integral part of the Anglican Consultative Council. (The Canadian vote on that got quite a lot of fuss recently). David B put a comment on that some might not have seen, pointing out that this proposal comes to the SEC last year. And we voted decisively against it.
