It's been a while since I wrote anything on my blog. Things have been very busy and exciting lately. Settling into and warming up the vicarage has taken up much of our time. Eventually the day of the licensing arrived and we had a wonderful service with many members of the Team Parish Churches in attendance, a number of local clergy and with quite a few from my previous churches in Ellon and Cruden Bay. Bishop Frank gave a sermon focussing on the grace of God, something we all need! Unfortunately, but hopefully not prophetically, I managed to break the bell rope after the third pull! Thanks to everyone who contributed to the delicious reception in the memorial hall afterwards. Getting into a routine now and it's good to be back at 'work'. First Sunday today, with two services; Holy Communion at Horsley and Mattins at Elsdon. At both I was made very welcome. Today's sermon is here if you want to read it. Or click on the link 'Sermon Archive' at the top of the page.
