Colin's Leaving Do
DSC00476 (768x1024)

We offered Colin and Helen Marchment our best wishes as they prepare to move to the Kirkoswald & Alston Moor Circuit in Cumbria.
Rev Robert Amos opened the service, which took place at Driffield, with a prayer and a reading from Paul's letter to the Philippians 1: 1-11. Then aided by Alan Moir there was a brief liturgy during which Colin was formally requested to hand over the keys to various Churches and his diary. It was explained to the congregation that this was only a symbolic gesture as Colin would need his diary and his car keys returned!
Colin thanked everyone for their support and spoke about two important words used in Methodism; first, the word 'Itinerancy' which ministers have to accept as part of the deal, but it doesn't make it any easier when it comes time to move on. Then there is the word 'Connexion' which Colin explained means that we are all connected to each other, through the Lord Jesus Christ, no matter where we may be.
Of course, the other important thing about Methodism is our ability to be robust singers of hymns, and today was no exception; we raised the rafters with 'O for a thousand tongues to sing' and finished with 'And can it be' before retiring for tea — another thing which we Methodists do rather well.
