On The Bench

bench2a3 Retirement Day

After 20 years of trying to be faithful to the vision given that wet day driving to Mass in Chichester, and humbled by the love and support of so many people making it possible , it was time to pass on the holy baton.

Among the many gifts was this beautiful wooden bench. impossible to leave behind and destined to be well occupied in the next, and last,  chapter of my wonderful life.

Matthew 23: 1-4

The addressing the people and his disciples, Jesus said “the scribes and the pharisees occupy the chair of Moses, you must therefore do what they tell you and listen to what they say, but do not be guided by what they do; since they do not practice what they preach”
