Having gone on about my health (or lack of it) over some days now, I am glad to report that things are looking up. Each day shows an improvement, and hopefully I will soon be fighting fit. Indeed, I am well enough to be able to contemplate what hymns I might want at my funeral. This is a topic that creates much interest at the monthly worship planning meeting, where myself and our two church organists try to devise a scheme of hymns and worship songs for the coming month. Thus we are always slightly ahead of ourselves in the church year. Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. Can that really mean that Easter is only six weeks away?
Even better – spring is only 25 days off.
