Michelin Stars For Vicars?

Recommended Posts

Not very long ago I was in a very low-church, evangelical set-up - not entirely my thing. We had a flourishing choir and a questionnaire was given to the church children generally. Amongst others, the question was asked 'which is your favourite service?'. Everyone (apart from my wife and I) were surprised and a little thrown when the answer came back 'Mattins'!.  We used to sing it only once a month. The reasons those kids liked Mattins were

1. It's brisk - no long silences, plenty to do.

2. Once the anthem's done, the kids can go to their Sunday School groups and don't have to come back in.  Perfect.

Needless to say, this was not the choice of service anyone wanted to hear!

And all God's people said....
