... yesterday I signed for delivery of a consignment of stones (small pebbles) and paving slabs at church which will be used to help smarten up the area around the front door. That wasn't in any of the courses I did at minister-school!
Yesterday evening a small group of folk (not me!) met to shovel the stones into place and lay the paving slabs so that they can be topped with tubs of flowers to make the entrance more welcoming.
We have a few other bits of tidying and smartening up in hand, so hopefully this will give a better sense (a) of us being a fellowship that is alive and kicking and (b) that we think church is worth doing well.
