During my holiday at Kidwelly, we wre able to join worshippers at Sketty Methodist Church in Swansea. The minister Richard Hall had fled on his holidays - the extent people go to in order to avoid the Martin family.
Still, we had a god service there led by a man called Bruce Sawyer. That is after someone directed us to a white Roman Catholic Church when we asked the way to the Methodist Church. Arriving to see a picture of the Pope, I thought must be visiting a rather unusual form of Methodist church. Still when we arrived and found ourselves having to sit at the front, it was nice to have got to the Switzerland of Methodism. Bruce offered the sanest exposition of the hope that comes from an expectation of the return of Christ, that I have heard for quite some time. More importantly, worship had a relaxed feel about it which I particularly appreciated.
Refreshments afterwards were agreeable.
Leaving to go to Mumbles where they serve quite the most delicious ice cream, we passed the church whose minister is Barth enthusiast Kim Fabricius who had fled to Greece so that he might avoid us.
I saw neither of these prolific bloggers but I had a sense that I was close to blogging heaven and the pull of doctrinal soundness - or was that me thinking too much about dh?
