Pauline took our service today having celebrated her 80th birthday yesterday. The service mentioned getting old and local heroes touching particularly on John Sumner who developed the Ty-Phoo tea brand and was born in Coleshill and is remembered by his alms houses. After the service there were cakes to be eaten one we had all sung happy birthday to Pauline
Not too many here today, but lovely cakes made by Anne and Jayne. Cynthia and Lewis both have birthdays in July and were sung to in preparation for the event. Lewis also helped to wash up with the aid of his Aunty Julie, so grateful thanks to them both for their help. Around 22 people attended and £91 raised for the MHA.
A telling tale of how you treat others with the story of a citizen who had pleaded with the King for more time to pay yet then went and dealt with an employee of his own in far worse terms. The King then sorted this out properly reminding him of how he was treated! From parable of the unforgiving servant Matthew 18:21-35.
