I’m leaving

Read in last week’s Church Times…

A vicar announced to his congregation that he was leaving the parish – “not because I am in dispute with the wardens, or at loggerheads with the organist.” Far from it. “I am going because Jesus called me here, and he is now calling me somewhere else.”

As he sat down, the curate announced the final hymn, which was sung with extraordinary gusto: ‘What a friend we have in Jesus.’
