Hats Off To Mr Kerrigan!

bmsToday is our Church Anniversary – 128 years young. We’ve had a truly blessed day with David Kerrigan, Director of BMS World Mission.

He has challenged us, inspired us, and thrilled us with stories of how God is working throughout the world.

In his travels, David has collected various hats from different lands. He asked the children to come and model them, and we prayed for the various countries.

More hats than children, so I got to wear a stunningly bright embroidered hat from Thailand and Bob wore a Nepalese titfer**.

Bob and David were at Spurgeons College together back in the early 1980s. Back then they both had thicker, darker hair!

**in case you are wondering ‘titfer’ is cockney rhyming slang for ‘hat’ [tit-fer-tat = hat]

    I would have liked to have been at the service to hear David talk.
