Trying to catch up with all that's been happening as the weeks have passed would be a tedious task, so, the past is history ... and I'll pick up from the weekend that's just gone.
What a weekend!
Ordination service in Llandaff Cathedral for Rachel Simpson and her fellow ordinands ... a wonderful and inspiring occasion in a most unusual building. I'd never been there, and was too young to pay attention to the controversy in 1957, so was totally unprepared for the surprise. The Majestas. It takes away your breath as you gaze upon Epstein's compelling creation.
On Sunday (was that just yesterday?) I had the chance to return to Llandaff for Choral Eucharist ... a beautiful service with an extraordinary choir and organist. I didn't like to go around and do the 'tourist thing' so the number of photographs from the Cathedral are sadly few ... but it is a place to which I'd love to return and try to take in more of the beauty and find out a bit about the history of this ancient building with its modern twist.
This is the Cathedral Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul.
