Fabulous Figs!!!

IMG_0095

This week, we were greeted at the Vicarage door by these figs from a member of the landed gentry.

The figs were absolutely gorgeous. I turned some into fig fritters. They too were delicious.

One of the wonderful things about belonging to a rural parish church is that there is no division between Jews and Gentiles.  We have a good mix of ordinary folk like me and members of landed gentry who co exist without any problems.

This is not the case in cities: once when I was in a Church in Edinburgh, I was told that that particular church was a professional church meaning it is only for professional people!!!!!  Fancy that????? The Church is for ALL.

The same thing happened again in the English city where we lived.  Folk who came to church from the nearby social housing developments were not even acknowledged.  How ridiculous!!!!
