Did you know that May was National Smile Month? Maybe it’s because there are two Bank Holidays, or that Spring really starts to burst out – whatever the reason, I like the idea of celebrating smiling. The articles in this month’s magazine show there is lots to smile about too. Each of the church reports is very buoyant and generates a feel-good smile; the reports about the visit of the Rival Star and the Mothers’ Union talk about Ty Elis make us nod our heads and give a thoughtful smile; and the reminders of our Summer Fayres brings out that summer’s-almost-here smile!
Of course, the BIG event of the month was the Royal Wedding. What a beautiful, happy day shared by so many smiling faces – I was lucky enough to watch it sitting in the dappled shade of my sister’s outside lounge in Bulgaria! As a special treat (and by popular request), I have included the full text of Bishop Michael Curry’s sermon. Read it at your leisure, it really is very powerful.
