Just a reminder from Carol Edwards to please do continue to send her prayer requests by email.
I hope those of you on WhatsApp will look at the next instalment of the Duplo story? The full story will eventually go on the Website.
Tomorrow’s service will be at 10 am and will be a Communion service for Maundy Thursday and we shall use a reading and the reflection for Maundy Thursday’s email from ‘Stages on the Way’. Bring your wine and bread! The liturgy for the service can be found on the Prayer and Worship page.

place smelt like the perfume department
or a big store.
was as if somebody had bumped their elbow
against a bottle
and sent it crashing to the floor,
setting off the most expensive stink bomb on earth.
it happened in a house,
not a shop.
And the woman who broke the bottle
was no casual afternoon shopper.
She was the penniless poorest of the poor,
giving away the only precious thing she had.
he sat still
while she poured the liquid all over his head….
as unnecessary as aftershave
on a full crop of hair and a bearded chin.

was in the air
when a poor woman’s generosity
became an embarrassment to their tight fistedness…
was on the Wednesday,
when they called him a waster.
