Yesterday evening we went to the theater for the first time in several years. It was to see The Pilgrim's Progress performed by the Saltmine Trust. It was performed in the modern way with 5 actors a bit of scaffolding and universal costumes and props. But that was fine. The whole audience was elderly and we had all read the book.
I enjoyed it immensely, though being out all that time (three and a half hours) was a bit of a strain.
This is a busy week for Christian things. The Bournemouth and Poole Convention has Frank Retief leading the Bible Readings with Orlando Saer doing the morning studies. Frank preached at our church last Sunday morning. He is the retired Bishop of Cape Town from the Continuing Church of England in South Africa (that's the evangelical lot) and he has preached for us some years ago (probably at least 25). Readers may remember the terrible massacre that occurred in their church (St James) in 1993. (watch the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ve50OmIg2cE)
Today, I have been relaxing listening to Harry Christophers' Sixteen singing and cleaning a window and this afternoon we visited a couple of garden centers.
Time for a cup of tea.
