Parish of Hadley Holy Trinity & Wellington Christ Church serving the people of Apley, Hadley, Leegomery, Arleston & South Wellington
Shoulders aching today, must be carrying the Cross on Monday, apparently someone who is not a Churchgoer remarked to her neighbour who walked with me on Monday, that seeing the Cross being carried along the Street as she drove past was a really emotional sight. Bringing into focus for her the reality of Easter amidst the trappings of commercial Bunnies and Eggs. She has expressed an interest in walking with us next time we do this. That for me provides all the justification for walking a real six to seven foot Cross through the streets, what an impact it has made. I am seriously considering talking the Cross around the Arleston Estate tomorrow if time permits.
Two services taken today and a visit to someone recovering from major surgery who can not get out to Church at the moment. Tomorrow night will be a service at Christ Church where we will explore the Stations of the Cross, something I have never experienced before!
