Nicky Jenkins was interviewed on BBC Radio Manchester this morning. Its a very short piece from 1:10.37 to 1.15.50. Just after Crowded House 'Always take the Weather'. It's available online for one week only! http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p017d32l
On Workers' Memorial Day and as Labour Day approaches, we'll look at the spiritual dimension of work and reflect on how it can help us find the sacred in the ordinary. The service will include a short ritual involving coffee. Tim Moore leads the service
Its traditional for us to have a service where our representative at our annual meetings(The General Assembly) reports back to the congregation.Hear about the resolutions of our annual meetings to support assisted dying, penal reform. peace and environmental awareness and get a feel for the issues that we are campaigning for as well as a sense of the spirituality that underpins that. Building Bridges is our Presidents theme for the next year. There will still be songs, poems and prayers.Freedom Reason and Tolerance are still our byword.
Many thanks to all
of you who came to support me at my Induction including Pauline, our neighbour
from the flats, Sheila's friend Jean ,Wendy from the Circle Dance group that
meet at the church, Caroline who comes to the yoga sessions at the church and my
