Have you met Revd Jones?

Rachel and I had a fantastic thought whilst we were rehearsing for the Chrism Mass this morning. We shared a few of those classic faux pas of ministry that we’ve experience recently.

(My most recent treasure being at the morning Eucharist when we were interviewing for the community missioner post in High Wycombe and I misread the text of Isaiah about SIN as “Your SKINS are as scarlet but they shall be white than snow”- my skin went DECIDEDLY scarlet! )

This discussion about putting your liturgical foot in it led us to pondering what might happen if Bridget Jones were to be ordained.

Can’t you JUST picture it?

I can't remember what I was reading at St Nix but i stumbled over the sentace about speaking clearly. Unfortunatly I was wearing a bright pink shirt and turned the same colour!!

And I did a reading at St Andrews in Plymouth recently and couldn't say 'ecclesiastes'. i just looked at the word and couldn't for the life of me work out what was going on! I got as far as 'the reading this evening is taken from...' and five seconds later had to turn around to the curate for a prompt! oops!
