We seem to be busy at Coventry with visits from various CCN partners at the moment, which is a real joy! On just one weekend last week we welcomed a visit from Neuruppin in Germany on the Friday, and on Saturday it was the turn of the Flightpath of Friendship Reconciliation, who came down from Doncaster on a special trip to mark the third anniversary of the presentation of their Cross of Nails, which they brought with them to be blessed a second time – pictured here with Dean John Witcombe, only newly arrived home from sabbatical.
Such visits are always a matter of teamwork, and particularly at the moment when it can seem that there are never enough of us on some days! All the more special are those who are there to meet and greet and bless too, when the core reconciliation team can’t be there ourselves – not least the ever-trusty Richard Parker who has, in English and in fluent German, made wonderful friends of numerous visiting CCN groups over the past few years. A heartfelt thank you to him and to all those who help our reconciliation ministry in all its forms, and a note below from a very happy visitor!
Hello dear friends,
I just wanted to personally thank everyone involved for a perfect day. Our group have made many posts and were overwhelmed by the hospitality and warm welcome. To Alice for all the help with organising and producing the schedule for the day. Especially the tip of the flapjacks (at Rising Café), yummy! Our guide Richard, a true gentleman of immense talent, education and wisdom. And blessed Canon Kathryn for her kindness and our special blessing of the Cross.
God Bless and thank you all.
Jacqui and friends. XXX
