During Lent we will also be having a series of Bible Studies.
St Mark writes: ‘With many such parables he spoke the word to them, as they were able to hear it; he did not speak to them except in parables, but he explained everything in private to his disciples. (St Mark 4:33-34)
This year we will be looking together at five of Jesus parables and thinking of how Jesus would have explained his parables to us if we had been one of his disciples at the time. The studies will be held on TUESDAYS in the Lady Chapel beginning on Tuesday, March 3:
1. The Parable of the Sower (St Luke 8:5-15)
As in previous years, they will be preceded by a service of Holy Communion at . People are welcome to come for just the Communion Service or just the Bible Study or, of course, for both!
Please see Ross for further details.

I am now back after a few days visiting family in the UK. I only just made it! As many will realize, the UK has been in the thick of severe bad weather. Well, that at least is how the news organisations are reporting it. It is true London got 2 to 4 inches of snow and that when I stepped out onto the street, it came to the top of my shoes. However, this resulted in the complete collapse of the transport system. It needed my brother in a Land Rover to get me to the station to go to the airport, because the main routes were blocked. Very strange!
It always takes a little while to clear everything up after being away. It wasn't helped this time by coming back to find that my study computer wouldn't work. I hadn't a clue why not. It had been working perfectly when I left. I also haven't a clue why after a few days it has suddenly started working again. It seems system crashes are flavour of the month at the moment!
