This morning was our Pledge Day at church - the day on which we were invited to commit ourselves to support in whatever way we are able, and is appropriate for us, the next phase of a huge project we are exploring.
It felt like it went pretty well - the collage of stickers on which we'd drawn ourselves "we are the church" looked amazing and reflected our diversity superbly well. We sang some beautiful songs and hymns, old and new, chosen by me and chosen by our MD and they all blended perfectly.
Two songs I used were particualrly remarked upon, which made me smile as they were two songs I'd learned whilst working with a Catholic church in Swinton... and one of them is actually from Iona...
Whoever we are, whatever we are able to offer, we can do so in this spirit.
