It has been a busy but rewarding weekend, hosting Jackie’s Sew Spiritual quilts and welcoming the people who came to view them. Yesterday several of Saturday’s visitors returned for a second viewing and brought others with them to experience the exhibition.
Here is another photo of Jackie and Hazel talking together as they met for the first time on Saturday. This morning Briant and Jackie dismantled and packed away the exhibition and then we went round for a very welcome cup of coffee with Hazel and Colin. We shared stories and exchanged contact details before all going our separate ways.
Briant led worship at Tiverton United Church yesterday morning, introducing himself as ‘twelfth man and baggage’! I think the analogy will be clear to those who understand cricket! Many of us have cause to be grateful to partners, friends and family members who support us patiently in our work for groups such as Methodist Women in Britain.
