Drunk in the morning

Drunk! -Thats exactly what the people thought of the first Christians at Pentecost as recorded in Acts 2Rev Andrews leader in June Envoy  talks of the beginnings  of AA  , and neatly links to Pentecost (pages 4 and 5). 
I couldn't wait for you all to get your copies of the Envoy so have posted a link above before the May
Spring comes to the end. 
Tomorrow at Cafe Church we will be celebrating the birth of the Church . The team have been asked to each bring a cake . I have made a  Diabetic one which my husband  calls The Wolf Hall cake as he says it is seriously Tudor in appearance and taste . It has no sugar , eggs or fat and is held together by dates, fruit and wholemeal flour with lots of spice. The recipe says to soak the fruit in Cognac or Whisky, but I only ever have Rum (as from a seafaring family ) so I used that , and drizzled lots on top before adding the the Marchpaine made with Stevia . I am hoping that tomorrow people will invite the Holy Spirit into their lives in a new way, and that the rum in my cake gives no one the chance to be drunk in the morning .

Two difficult words

Ascension and Melchidedek, (Melchizedek,Thanks Gary) to
The are the most difficult words to spell, and every time I use them I have to look them up. Like me , I wonder who else never uses a dictionary but simply googles the perceived spelling and sees what comes up!
Today is my favourite day in the Liturgical Year, like the start of the rest of my life, which in Gods life was sort of true. Its my most Anglican Day in mindset. Its the day of DAY OFF, its the day of Rejoice, its the day of my favourite Bach Cantata, more of a short Oratorio really BWV11Praise Our God (Lobet Gott in seinen Reichen)*. I have only one Vinyl Recording left , the Kathleen Ferrier version of this Cantata.

Here  is  the human response to the Ascension ,  falling so short, and not getting the whole point . Its much easier to get a grasp of the day by reading through the Daily Office for Ascension Day. If you use the internet daily  this useful App is a great tool for your Homepage.
I'm not a regular reader of the Daily prayers on this App, but like Google Sky and QR reader or Nutmeg in the Spice Cupboard one would be bereft without it .

Addendum: Listening to BWV Cantata 43 .Gott fahret mit jauchzen,God is gone up with a shout! Trumpets and fanfares in this one and the words are of triumph and Kingship . Fantastic !

*Here looking at the German translation on the notes with the CD I feel just like Lady Catherine de Bourgh , If I had learned it I would have been most proficient ,She of the Pianoforte, and me of German lessons, for I never got French , Latin or Greek but German looks logical*

Joining the Dots

People in Filey will be praying tomorrow night for the outcome of the General Election. At 8pm as the chimes of Big Ben strike , Christians in Parliament Square will go down on their knees and say the Lord's Prayer together and our homegroup will join them from our little cottage in the oldest street of our Town.

Why dont you get together with some of your friends and join the Prayer Party
