    What should a priest do?

    Just back from Middlesborough via the beautifully scenic drive across the A66 (Cumbria's hills in full view in early-evening light), and M6 / M58 (likewise, Snowdonia in the clear blue sky). Broke the journey at a picnic table at Killington Lake, watching seagulls circle one of the islands and lines of ducks quack all the way from one end of the lake to the other.

    Earlier I had preached at Dave's priesting service. Moved them and made them laugh by reciting Stewart's unsurpassable poem, Priestly Duties. The Bishop of Hull liked it. And so did the bloke who kept me talking in the loos and told me he didn't normally go to church. A good day.
