(Even when the heating isn’t working!)
What an incredibly stoical bunch we are in Cockshutt! With our latest Open Church Coffee Morning being held on one of the coldest days of the year so far and with the heating going through a phase of down-time (not working!) we wondered whether we should do what seemed to be the unthinkable; go ahead and set-up anyway. Full of optimism (and much shivering!) we did just that. It proved to be a good decision for at 10.30 on the dot, our first friend arrived, swiftly followed by others. And so, suitably wrapped in extra warm clothing we all huddled around our temporary heaters; armed with steaming hot drinks and fortified by delicious home-made cake, we spent a very happy morning enjoying, as always, the easy conviviality of fellowship and friendship!
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
