DIOCESAN CONSULTATION DOCUMENT – should be available this weekend – though no sign of it yet. The bishop writes ‘ I want to propose that as we work our way through these changes we renew and increase our devotion to the Eucharist acrosss the our parishes. Most parishes have some time given to Adoration. Can I suggest the following: if there is no adoration in your parish that you begin it, even an hour a week? If you already have some time for adoration, can you increase that perhaps to daily adoration, and if you already have regular adoration can that be increased even more? Would it be too bold to envisage a time when there is perpetual adoration in most if not all of our churches? That is my sincere hope and something that I wish all of us to take seriously.’

Based on a true story – a funny and life-affirming tale of community spirit in the face of adversity.
MORE SHOWERS THAN SUNSHINE – this past week, and parishioners returning from holiday with a tan have not been to Knott End on Sea! We thought it better not to announce a barbecue at present – Friday is St Swithin’s Day!!!!

REALLY – ‘There was an old person of Ewell, who chiefly subsisted on gruel; but to make it more nice, he inserted some mice, which refreshed that old person of Ewell’ -Edward Lear.
ALUN LEWIS – ‘Religion resides in our eyes rather than in our minds. We see; then we love.’
