Pancake Grace

Don’t forget our pancake meal, 6pm in the Parish Function Centre, Christ Church, Swan Hill.

O God we thank you for pancakes;
their richness and flavour,
and the way they combine so well with the lemon and sugar, and the jam and cream.
We thank you for the aroma of frying and the skill of the cooks, in the art of the perfect pancake.
Let us enjoy them to the full today.  Let them prepare us for the challenge ahead.  Amen.


During the past few months I have seen eagles everywhere I travelled, bringing to mind that verse;

Isaiah 40.31:

but those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength,
they shall mount up with wings like eagles,
they shall run and not be weary,
they shall walk and not faint.

So it was wonderful to walk into Christ Church Swan Hill on Tuesday and see the beautiful brass eagle lectern there to welcome me.


Unfortunately I am not tall enough to do more than peer over it.  There is a step I could use, but I am told it is a health hazzard and everyone trips over it.  I am really not sure quite what to do.  I might have to leave that lectern for taller readers, and use something that is more suitable to my height.  I will probably wear the lapel mike and steer clear of the lectern.
