horses in the cathedral
And now we have horses. Great to be back together as mayBe community on Sunday and at this week's Eucharist on the Meadow [it's a cathedral to us] we had 2 horses join us as the Gospel was being read. For a while it all seemed very much in the spirit of St Francis. OK Gail [country-born/city dweller] was being nibbled but Dave [jounalist/car mechanic/dad-to-be] was doing his horse-whispering thing. Then a bunch more horses came, and they were pretty big. Seemed like some of us were getting a bit concerned so we processed to another part of the Meadow. The horses' interest waned, and the Eucharist continued. They did not follow us to the cafe, nor to the pub.
