Tonight I spent the evening in a lovely ecumenical Harvest service at St. Leonard’s Balderstone. The vicar there was giving the parish announcements and one of them was something about the Ladies Fellowship having a cookery demonstration. For some reason, it caught me in a strange way, and I turned to one of my church members and asked, ‘Did the apostles foresee all this? Ladies Fellowship cookery demonstration?’
As we were trying stifle our laughter, I had this vision of the Apostle Peter standing in the Jerusalem church making the same announcement. Actually, if I try to imagine Paul being handed the announcement, I see him less cooperative.
