Well…almost. Bob gets a quarterly magazine called Maintenance and Equipment News. According to their website “first published in 1959 to provide Churches …with valuable information on the fabric of buildings. It continues to this day with the same objective of [helping] readers … to keep up to date with… fire and safety regulations, the latest in energy technology and a whole host of other subjects that are critical for churches to be aware of”
MEN has fallen through the Manse letterbox since I could first read. I have never got that thrilled about the Gopak Tables or the dehumidifiers – but the crossword at the back has always been a challenge [I used to struggle through it with my Dad when I was a kid]. It has the most obscure clues, taken usually from the King James Bible, and frequently it says “There were no correct answers received last time, so no prize awarded” But this time round, look …
That is rather useful. Thanks MEN!
My other unexpected blessing this week came on Sunday. I preached for the last time at the Chapel in Desford, and after the service was presented with this rose bush as a leaving present. It is called “Absolutely Fabulous” It promises to have “double primrose/gold blooms, very fragrant, with excellent repeating habit” Thank you, dear friends – I shall miss you all , very much.
