Lunch and lots of prayer

On the previous Sunday, we had been tied up all day with a swimming competition and did not get to church. We made up for it today by going twice to St. Mary's (once in the morning and once in the evening).

I should stress that being a Christian does not involve collecting the appropriate number of frequent attendance points .. going twice was our choice, not something we were obliged to do.

One of the hymns in the morning had a line that was particularly apt, given the prospect of the results of my scan on then following day.

"Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow".

Sue and I met Chris for lunch, and I sorted out some swimming stuff in the afternoon, before we returned to St. Mary's for the evening service, which included prayers for the outcome of my scan and a lot of good wishes.
