Dear Friends

Summer is well and truly here even if the weather is unpredictable — situation normal in the UK of course.

Back at the beginning of July I had the joy of attending Chester Cathedral when Revd Fiona Robinson was ordained deacon. We also had a 'welcome to the parish' for her and Peter the following Saturday afternoon. Welcoming her to Chelford wasn't necessary as she already lives here but it was important to mark the occasion of her taking on this new role as she follows God's call on her life.

That same weekend we had a rather packed first Sunday for Fiona ending with a wonderful service of Choral Evensong with a full choir from around the area — it wasn't especially for her but definitely suited the occasion and was a happy coincidence! Peter, Tower Captain at St Mary's, Nether Alderley, with Charles, Tower Captain at Chelford also joined in by arranging a rather spectacular ring after the 10.00am service.

Celebration is at the heart of our lives together. All of us, at different times have cause to celebrate and we do so in a variety of ways. Some preferring a quiet occasion whilst others like things rather more bouncy and loud! We don't always get to choose of course! The life of Jesus was punctuated with celebration — some organised and some impromptu. Either way things don't always work out the way we expect — think of the feeding of the 5,000, or the wedding at Cana. Also we don't always know who will turn up!

So whether celebration is planned, or simply breaks out — have a wonderful summer; and if life surprises you be sure to embrace it with joy and build your memories with family and friends.
