Not an easy exercise – driving in the nails. Brings it home!
Chris gave me a book on fermentation for Christmas. I did a jar of courgettes, which was lovely. On the right is cabbage to become sauerkraut. On the left is a mixed jar of carrot, cabbage, cooking apple and quince to become – heaven only knows what. The book calls them all “krautchi”, combining part of ‘sauerkraut’ with (I think) ‘kimchi’. Fermentation preserves food, and it’s very good for you.
I can easily get through a jar of Sainsbury’s Sauerkraut in a week.
People of all ages contributed to the Altar Frontal. I pencilled outlines of crosses onto plain fabric and we used 3D fabric paint to decorate them. When they were dry, we pinned them onto purple fabric placed over the altar. Great fun to do. It will still be there at the next Fun@4 service on Sat 16 March.
An angel from the Easter Garden announces to Mary from the ambulatory that she is to bear a child. The angel that anounces the resurrection – and birth into the new creation – is here announcing the birth into the first creation.
