Yesterday was the advent carol service – an amazingly rich feast of words and music – and all the prose pieces written by four from the churches, if you count me as an ex member.

It was incredible hearing my pieces brought to life in the voices of others. I owe so much to those who read so beautifully. The music was stunning – I had not realised how much I missed this gift, or how incredibly talented the two home congregations are.

It was an astonishing effort, real team work – yes a tribute to the time and talent of the leader but also to each member of the team. The whole was truly greater than the parts. How wonderful it is when church really works.
