Pastoral Coordinator Helen found out that Bev and George had sold their home and would be leaving in three weeks. She talked it over with Bev M at the seminar they were both attending last Tuesday. Today almost all the parish membership met at Barke’s place for a terrific get-together that nobody knew anything about six days earlier.
The point is that there was no sub-committee meeting; nothing planned by Parish Council, no minutes of a decision to organise a social event. It just happened.
That’s how it is in the small church.
