I met up with the London Cluster for the last time today. This is the group of YFC Directors that run centres in and around London.
After lunch I was presented with some wonderful gifts – something to wear under my cassock (I’m not telling?!) a pack of Drinking Games cards which will come in handy when I am sitting in Wetherspoons in Rochester with my dog collar on, a very generous gift of money and a fantastic card.
I was entirely surprised and lost for words – not a common or comfortable place for me to be in!
These great friends told me how much they appreciated what I had been doing but I sincerely believe that all I have been doing is encouraging and supporting friends – the job has been fairly easy because the people I work with, my friends, have made work very easy.
I am touched by the generosity of gifts, but more so by the generosity of friendship of this group of people that have become a large part of my life.
Thanks again guys and girls – you’ve been great and I really hope we manage to stay in touch.
