notes from a small vicar
from a parish
in Liverpool, UK

    Do like to be beside the Dee-side
    There is no barrier between two worlds in the Church,
    The Church militant on earth
    Is one with the Church triumphant in heaven,
    And the saints are in this Church which is two in one.

    They come to worship with us, our small congregation,
    The saints our oldest ancestors
    Who built Wales on the foundation
    Of the Crib, the Cross and the Empty Tomb...

    The words of D. Gwenallt Jones which open the terrific prayer-poem 'Dewi Sant' (trans. St David), set me on my way down to Bangor is y Coed (trans. Bangor below the wood, otherwise known as Bangor on Dee) where tonight sometime commentor-on-this-website Adrian becomes their rector.
