The First of Many Lasts

T Minus 136

Last night was the first of many lasts here in the UK.

I sat at my last PCC meeting. This, for those who don’t know, is the Parochial Church Council, a sort of elected parliament in the church, which helps to make decisions.

I have sat on the PCC for most of the past 24 years (with a 4 year gap in the mid ‘nauties’). I was first elected in 1990 – proposed at the AGM by a certain curate by the name of David McDougall, who is soon return to SMB, after many years away, as the new Rector (small world!) I have enjoyed PCC for the most part – generally good humoured but with robust debate on occasions, people genuinely seeking to do the right thing for God. I will miss it.

As we disentangle ourselves from the
UK, there will be many lasts. In truth some things may have happened for the last time, of which we have been unaware. Others happened before we knew we were leaving. This is the first thing which I can definitely say is my last.

The first of many lasts!
