Oh to be in England

Took this snapshot yesterday after worship at St. Alban's Abbey. Anyone suggesting that the Church of England is dead wouldn't know it from here -- a lively Eucharist with a very full nave, a procession of I would guess close to 75 children returning to the Communion from their Sunday School, lovely music and a rock-solid sermon from Dean Jeffrey John. All in all the signs of life in Christ abundantly evident! Followed by a lovely lunch with Simon Sarmiento and Marilyn, and an uneventful trip back to London.

Makes me ache for England (it must be in the genes).

Thanks,
