I make absolutely NO APOLOGIES for these addenda…and why not I here you chunter? Well, instead I rejoice, because this week’s addenda have been generated by people ACTUALLY READING THE PEW NOTES….Astounding!!! Yes folks, people got in touch and asked me to add things, so here they are:
Of:”I believe that the Pastoral Care Course will now start Tuesday 2nd October” I am asked by Canon Cynthia to confirm that this is the case, and that it will start directly after Evensong in the Undercroft once the choir have vacated it. People can use the Undercroft door. For those of you in Black and white, and who have no idea where the Undercroft is, it’s the East end of the Cathedral and can be accessed through the Dean’s Yard
Of: “the start of the Cathedral’s School of Theology with Fr Tim in charge. First term of ten weekly 2 hour lectures is entitled “Jesus and the Bible” in the Radcliffe Learning Centre at 7:30 See http://www.liverpoolcathedral.org.uk/schooloftheology.aspx for more details or contact Fr Tim” The full programme for this term may now be found at this link. Congratulations to Fr Tim and all who turned up last night. We’ve come a long way in our adult education over the last three years if we have to start putting out extra seats as we did last night.
Of : “Women’s Issues Forum: Wednesday 3rd October, 6.30pm. St James’ House” Unfortunately this has now been cancelled. If, like me you had been thinking of going but not notified anyone, please make sure that you do notify your interest in good time so as to avoid events being cancelled.
I am asked by Revd Dr Ellen Loudon if I could publicise this event, which looks like it might be well worth attending. As a former allotment holder I’m all in favour of Harvest Festivals. Anyway here are the details:
RiverArts Urban Harvest 2012:16th October 7pm. St Luke’s – ‘The Bombed Out Church’ (on the corner of Berry Street and Leece Street)
“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”Galatians 6.9
Don’t grow weary…come and share, celebrate and do good.
This harvest thanksgiving service will seek to explore the goodness of our city life. We will celebrate God’s gifts and discover the goodness in each other and ourselves. We will give thanks for our harvest of talent and share what we have with those who gather. We will also pray for the future of our city: we pray for the harvest of justice and peace to thrive and the weeds of intolerance, greed and suffering to fail. May Liverpool be a free and Godly place where the harvest is good and righteousness reigns! Please come to this celebration with your creative gifts: a piece of art, a home-made craft, a song, a poem, a dance, a beautiful sound, a hidden talent, a silent word offered in hope… whatever you bring to God in grace will be acceptable as a sign of your thanksgiving for all that is good in your life.

Peter Bates has asked me, in the interests of fair play, to implore you to sponsor him as he runs in the Liverpool half Marathon on behalf of Amnesty International. He seemed to suggest that as a Cantoris Tenor WAG I had given an unbalanced coverage of Ceredig Chell’s 10K run on behalf of the Organ Fund….as if I would be prejudiced against a decarni Tenor!! WHEN Peter gets around to sending me the details, I shall put them in next week’s Pew Notes, but in the meantime, if you want to throw money at him, why not grab him after a service? If nothing else, it will make him very happy!!
I referred in the prayer list to the meeting of the CNC this week to choose the next ABC . Now it won’t have escaped your notice that a certain Northerly Bishop is figuring in the betting…could that have surprised any of us? However, the press do keep using the photo of him dressed like a daffodil, clutching the mid week congregation’s gift of a Shepherd’s crook….now when it was designed, I don’t suppose we ever thought Rocky the Rock Badger would ever be quite so prominent. Should the CNC see sense, I can see the Lambeth Palace press office may be in some difficulties explaining why the ABC has a Rock Badger on his crosier!! And on that thought I offer the following very funny take on the CNC process: however, it does come with A BAD LANGUAGE ALERT….so if you are offended by such things, please DO NOT OPEN the link below: http://plumsteadletters.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/elect-to-leave.html?m=0
