Three men in a Bow Tie

4th July 2017

I had the responsibility of leading two funerals yesterday, one for a family to which I have served before, and the second for a gentleman from our Church.
I was struck as the day went by just how different human beings are, how diverse are their families, in yesterday's case, families from all over Europe,
and yet even in two very different services, how our common thread became instantly familiar in both cases.
A knowledge of being loved, being held, being cherished
partly these qualities bound our two peoples together in thier great differences.

Waking up this morning to hear the devastating life changing news about the attack upon people, especially young people attending a concert in Manchester. Shocked that yet again someone would target this particular clientele. Knowing that children and young people would comprise of a large percentage of those attending, and saddened that along with Manchester, so many people across the Planet face this kind of trauma, day in and day out.

Yesterday was a busy day of real contrast: Sunday began as I went into Christ Church at 7:10, in order to set everything up for the new 8am BCP Eucharist service. BCP being the Book of Common Prayer, and so a very old and traditional service, with a very different feel to our usual Eucharist. I was thrilled to be joined by 14 others, as we shared the old familiar poetic language which has shaped our Anglican worship over the centuries.
