Wining and Smiling

The Vestry Group changed water into wine this morning, accompanied by ‘Oooh’s’ and ‘Ahhh’s’ from the congregation. We must hire them for the choir dinner next week. Meanwhile we concentrated on the bread, singing the Iona anthem, ‘Bread is blessed and broken’ – the best verse being ATB hum with a single soprano voice soaring over the top. The preacher urged us to make the world a better place by smiling at everyone – a task made very easy by the organist playing us out to ‘Radetsky March’ (Strauss) – it’s very hard to keep a straight face to that!
