Yesterday afternoon I joined GV and some (one) of the oldest St Silasites for communion. It is a great afternoon which I am pretty sure I have mentioned previously, but yesterday afternoon will remain memorable for what was afterwards described as a "delightful coincidence."
After we had shared communion with each other we were chatting away about our hosts grandchildren and the schools that they attend down in England and, during the conversation, I mentioned that I had been at Bromsgrove for 2 years. She reached down, took out an envelope from the table, gave it to me and told me to look inside; I really wasn't sure why as she doesn't know me well and it certainly couldn't have been a pre-planned something for me. But I opened the envelope and inside it found a prospectus and lots of information on...Bromsgrove School! It turns out that her grandson is considering going there; what a small world, and what a delightful coincidence.
