Corny but Encouraging!

Today I made contact with a 'new' woman minister on the adjacent 'plot' to mine.  I was shocked to discover I was the first minister other than her circuit colleagues to do so - and I was only doing so out of courtesy because a couple of my people might be heading her way.  She was fun to chat to, blunt, honest and deeply committed to alternative worship and mission (see, despite local reluctance over women, alternative worship and mission, God keeps sending us to this corner of the Kingdom!  Now we have 3 Baps, one Anglican and 1 Methodist).

Anyway, Barbara reminded me of this, which is corny, fairly accurate scripturally (except on Mary Magdalene and the Samaritan woman) and good for the ministerial ego!

Jeremiah and Timothy were too young
David had an affair and was a murderer
