The Church of Sunday Tea

Good morning.  Welcome all to the Church of Sunday Tea.  The tea for today will be Earl Grey, hot. (picard maneuver).  Nothing cheers a grey chill November day like bergamot-scented tea.

The Hymns for today’s service are as follows:

Welcome Travellers To the Church
Play-doh Crumpets Crumble
Wash the Sheets Together
Tea Sootheth the Weary Friend

There is Kindness in the Jam-Jar

 There is kindness in the jam-jar
as you spread the jelly, share
nice warm crumpets from the toaster
blending with the butter there

Tea and crumpets make us happy
when we share them with our friends
there is so much joy in tea time
we hope tea time never ends

Spreading jam on scones or crumpets
makes these baked goods extra nice
whether summer or in winter
even if the tea be iced

So bake your crumpets and your sweet scones
call a friend to share with you
all the sweetness of the jam jar
when you ask one lump or two

And now for the Parish announcements:

The usual evening supper service at the church will not be held, due to an outing of the Yarn Appreciation Society. Instead, there will be a sunrise tea service AND and afternoon tea service.  Those attending the afternoon service are asked to be prompt, due to the Yarn members travel arrangements.  Socks still need homes.  We understand that these are hard times, but nothing softens hard times like soft socks.  Please visit www.sockdollies.com and open your home to one of these orphans soon.  The piecrust meeting is tentatively scheduled for next Sunday.  If there is enough interest, this will be the official date of the meeting.  Please contact the rectory.  Also, volunteers are needed to do advanced prep for the annual Christmas Cookie event.  Contact Peapod Directly if you wish to be involved.  Also note.  It is still fruitcake weather.  All parishioners are encouraged to read the sacred text “A Christmas Memory” by Truman Capote.  Finally, anyone wishing to mush kittens this week should call at the parish for details.

Today, meditate on sugar cubes…something ordinary turned into something special.  One lump or two? Ask that every day 🙂
