On the tracks and in a fog.

I thought I might see  York Minster today!

What kind of crown?

A prayer from this morning’s Daily Prayer :

Crown us, O God, but with humility,and robe us with compassion,

that, as you call us into the kingdom of your Son,

we may strive to overcome all evil

by the power of good

and so walk gently on the earth

with you, our God, for ever.

Kings Bring Gifts to Vicar!

Rev'd Canon Paul Scott gives a speech at his birthday celebration

Rev’d Canon Paul Scott gives a speech at his birthday celebration

We were in a celebratory mood today, the 8th January because it was our Vicar, the Rev’d Canon Paul Scott’s 60th birthday!

Rev’d Paul’s birthday happened to fall on the church’s celebration of Epiphany, and he was presented with gifts from three ‘kings’ including a special book from all of us containing our good wishes and thanks for his ministry. As the ‘star’ of the party, he was also given a star-covered cake which we enjoyed with him after the service (with glasses of prosecco, too!)

We’d like to wish him many happy returns – and we hope to celebrate many more birthdays with him in the future.

Epiphany may be a tricky word for under 3s but there were plenty of kings ( with very posh crowns)who followed the star to the crib to see the baby Jesus this morning!….
