St Mary's News SUNDAY BLOG – 19th APRIL

If you return to the HOME page and then click on SERVICES, today’s videod Sunday service appears. Well worth a watch.

Christian Aid Week starts 10th May, but due to the current crisis, door-to-door collections and events like food sharing can’t go ahead. Rev David Moss is working on an alternative.

Glad to report that Tony Bates has recovered from his illness but although he remains in hospital, he is soon to be moved to a more appropriate location where his physiotherapy can be progressed. Meanwhile, wife Diana is still living in the village, but work on their new house acquisition in Thornbury is about to start.

How does she do it? Sarah, in Olveston Village Stores. First of all she is displaying an  amazing range of flowers and at ridiculously low prices – just perfect for the garden – but it’s been so DRY. And then, it RAINS, just in time to water the newly planted flowers! Amazing.

Also very worthy of praise are the Village Volunteers and Tockington Together. These groups of well-minded, often young people, are keeping house-bound villagers supplied with essentials whilst also walking their dogs and delivering newspapers. Well done guys, you are all heroes.

How many Christians does it take to change a light bulb?                                                                       Amish: What’s a light bulb?                                                                                                                           Lutherans: None – Lutherans don’t believe in change.                                                                                               Mormons: One man to change the bulb, four wives to tell him how to do it.                                                        Methodists: Depends – dim bulb, bright bulb, turnip bulb, tulip bulb, you are all loved.                                   Roman Catholics: None – candles only.                                                                                                        Anglicans: Have to put that to the Buildings Committee first.
