The Archbishop and his drums

Since we have no Church services on Sunday due to the Coronavirus lockdown, the Minister and I watched the online service by the Archbishop of York. Last week, it was the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Archbishop of York started the service by beating the drums!!!! Yes, you read it correctly.

It was quite a sight to see the Archbishop in all his fineries beating the drums!!!! I am very traditional but I have to say that it was a breath of fresh air.

Here in the West, the church bells indicate the call to Worship but according to the Archbishop, the call to worship in Uganda, the Archbishop’s country of birth was by beating the drums!!!!

I don’t know too much about the Archbishop of York……more accurately didn’t bother finding out!!! Suddenly I realise that I do like him….. It is a bit late now as he is retiring in June 2020!!!!
