Good afternoon Ringers, well what a day we had today! We had 7 bells ringing!!!! And, we had a visitor checking us out, we welcome Kristina, who may come see us ring again next Sunday. Carole also found a little kitten, if anyone wants to adopt one – not sure of its sex, but it was quite cute and small.
Ken, it’s always good to see you and there is the possibility that Anne will be able to join us. I actually saw Anne and Aleshia (not sure about spelling) being baptized in church today. And, what also was special was that Bishop Frade also made a terrific analogy between bell ringing and being religious and spiritual.
He stated that we all need to be clappers making the music of equality and justice. That you cannot have one, meaning the bell, without the clapper. It was pretty cool indeed for him to utilize the bells as a means of making his point about the importance of being both religious and spiritual.
