Yesterday the annual Covenant Service at Raunds Methodist Church was saved by St Peter's Church of England. Seriously, my voice was really giving up with this cold and interrupted by coughing so we only got through the service because Shena (Rector at St Peter's) was leading the service and presiding at Communion. I only had to preach and my voice just about held out for that although I had to get Phil to turn up the volume on the mic far more than normal.
It was great that so many commented afterwards on how good it was to worship together and just how many had come despite the weather.
The service was followed by our monthly lunch at Church, Roast Beef this time. It was a few minutes late for which the preacher got the blame
I confess to being very relieved at not having an evening service so I went to bed. Feeling much better today, enough so I awoke early to listen to the start of Chris Evan's breakfast show on Radio 2. Next stop is to find lots of extra warm clothes for a staff meeting at the circuit office (hopefully followed by coffee in the snug at Beans to thaw out).
