On the Way
Commemorative Chalices for the Diocese of Wakefield, (126 Not Out but soon to retire hurt...) in production at Bentham Pottery. A Chalice, each of which bears the Wakefield Cross, will be given to each Church in the Diocese following the Thanksgiving Service in the Cathedral on Palm Sunday, as we move towards our new Diocese of Leeds: West Yorkshire and the Dales.
While colleagues continued with the offering of the daily Midday Prayers in St Mary's, during this Octave of Prayer for the Unity of Christians, I was able to spend a helpful Quiet Morning at Mirfield. The Octave has seemed to have more energy this year than it has for a while, and a positive Meeting of our Elland & District Churches Together has produced some creative suggestions for how we might mark our ongoing journey to Unity this year.
After a meeting at the Hospice this afternoon, I arrived back to walk over to All Saints to say Evening Prayer, just in time for the first Hail Storm of the Year.
