A round of applause even
Well, despite my better judgement, it did get announced in church this morning. It was really nice actually. The vicar spoke of new life and new beginnings and another of our friends, a couple, who have just had their first child were also asked to come up and introduce their son to the congregation. Then it was our turn…
To my surprise, as I explained what we were up to and that I had been recommended for training, the congregation applauded. I don’t think the wife or I were expecting that.
Again, I apologised to those who had no inkling that we were even in the process and explained the reasons why but everyone was great about it and just seemed to add to everyone’s sense of rejoicing as we celebrated the good news of Easter and the glorious resurrection of our Lord.
