I had a fantastic experience today. I climbed up a rickety ladder to the top of our church's interior porch and from there up another short ladder to the parvys over the outside porch. It was a marvelllous place (where the church's Christmas decorations live!) and - although I did get a bit of a scare when I suddenly realised one of the kings was looking at me!! - I also had the opportunity of seeing the church from an elevated position. I could see out through the clear windows onto the shops outside. I could see the stained glass windows in greater detail. It was a refreshingly new outlook on life and on the church. It was also a wonderful place to sing from but I imagine the choir won't be taking advantage of that!
