On Tuesday evening Fr Alan and I took part in the service at St Paul’s cathedral to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the ordination of women to the sacred priesthood. It was good to see some members of St Nick’s in the congregation to support us. The service was moving, with several women describing briefly their varying experiences of serving as priests in the London diocese.
At Morning Prayer on Wednesday our New Testament reading included the following verses from the First Letter of John: ‘How does God’s love abide in anyone who has the world’s goods and sees a brother or sister in need and yet refuses to help? Little children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action’. This Sunday there will be Christian Aid envelopes in church. If you were not able to make a contribution during Christian Aid week you might like to do so this Sunday.
With every blessing
