Larry organised outreach to Copley Close estate and we prayed for some tenants from there to be part of the church and move us from being evangelical middle class. Yes Doris was an answer to prayer but we did not expect to have to help sort our personal care issues and have an elderly lady with a young male cohabit in tow. Stephen had mental health problems. devoted to Doris, if she came to church so did he.

This month Kat's mother died of breast cancer. She was in Potters Bar cottage hospital stoically refusing to bother the staff for analgesics. She went from paracetamol to diamorphine shortly before she died. One good thing. Afterwards, who had no profession of faith, became a regular active Methodist.
