Wow, first day in the “new job”, my first official day in the ministry.
This morning, on with the clerical collar, (in a polo shirt!), and opening the manse to welcome people for Tea and Coffee.
Over 30 people came, there was much chatting, lots of tea and coffee drank, lots of smiles, and laughter.
The people here are so friendly.
(Caroline, who insisted she was not going to be a model of a ‘minister’s wife’ made lots of teas and coffees, and did the job splendidly. However, she refused to wear the floral dress – in joke!)
Two services tomorrow! Off we go.
