Today was special too as I have been appointed as a member of the College of Canons of Gloucester, an unexpected and very honouring appointment by Bishop Michael. The official announcement was made here today - to coincide with that in Gloucester and I celebrated communion : again a first for me to do so in Swahili in the Cathedral. I will be installed in Gloucester Cathedral on July 10th (to which all are welcome) - but today I was presented with a live chicken as my congratulations from the congregation!!
Time now for an afternoon snooze, then a walk over the hills, and to get ready for a busy coming week with college students returning and 4 hospitals to visit for Alastair.
