St Pauls Patronal Festival

We had a good sermon from Archdeacon Jonathan and Jenny taking the service instead of Chandy, Chandy is in hospital and so Jenny had to organise the Service at the last minute. We had some fun with the running order of the hymns and the fact that Jenny couldn't see the hymn board, but otherwise we had a good service.

 Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!

Archdeacon Jonathan tried and succeeded in showing us that Paul was indeed a very happy person who loved God and that some of his complaints to certain churches and individuals should be taken just as that. Too much of Pauls letters are taken and applied to different situations. He reflected on a book that he had read and showed us that we should rejoice in the Lord always.

We even managed to sing the hymn Rejoice in the Lord always as a round, since there were enough of us attending St Paul's from St Mary's to give a good sized congregation.

After the service there was a bring and share lunch.
