How do you sum up a day like today?
How do you sum up a day when all the characters that shape me were together? Patrick, Judith, Victor etc... together with 80 odd people together as family as opposed being by themselves? How do you sum up some of our African congregation playing all the christmas classics with frail 80 year old Lucy jamming along on her mouth organ? How do you sum up the panic when potatoes simply refused to roast, carrots refused to boil to schedule? How do you sum up being able to drop people home and sense their heart felt gratitude? Bethan got close.
"... you know what Dad?.... you really do smell of old people...!"
I love being part of the 'visible emerged' church at Christmas even if I do smell of old people!!
I'm off for a bath and a bit of a read!!
