    Many thanks to you all – listening at home gives you more time and space to really listen. Prayers, readings, music and sermon much appreciated – is it possible to have the words for the songs so we can join in?
    Now for the cup of tea after the service ☺️

    I really enjoyed this service, it was really great. I can listen to it when I want to, rather than having to be at church at a certain time. But we miss really being together, if we listen like this, we’re not physically being together. I thought the reading and the sermon were very challenging. I was thinking “should we go & find people who’ve died, eg from Coronavirus, & try and raise them from the dead?” I don’t think Simon wants us to do that!!!!! There’s a bit where Jesus says “These things, & even greater things, shall you do, (because I’m going to the Father.)” I think he said the bits in brackets, I can’t remember!!!!! I hope you don’t mind me saying these things. Hopefully we’ll meet up again before too long. There’s that song,”We’ll meet again, don’t know where, don’t know when, but I know we’ll meet again some sunny day!!!” You can tell what social isolation’s doing to my mind!!!!!!!!! God bless you all. “See you in the plan,” as they used to say in Norwich!!!!!!!!
