Our weather forecasters didn’t get it quite right. There wasn’t a total deluge on Pentecost Sunday here in Longridge as had been predicted but at least, we were warned that outdoor activities might not be possible. Sadly therefore we were unable to put up the marquee and enjoy ‘Picnic in the Park’. A few brave souls ate their sandwiches in Christ Church Hall and wrestled with Carol’s origami symbols of a dove and a flame which were later used to illustrate the service. A few more joined us and we thoroughly enjoyed singing choruses ably led by Bernard Hunt on the guitar and then had a short service for Pentecost. Though few in numbers we represented all four of the Longridge churches and were able to give thanks that, whatever our differences, we are one in the Spirit.
