WE SAID A BIG THANK YOU to retiring Churchwarden Tricia Munn this morning. Tricia’s four years’ service in that office have been exemplary, not least in the encouragement she has given to others and the care she shares with me for succession planning in Church life. In a brief speech of response Tricia observed that time spent in the ancient office of Churchwarden gives a person a wide-angled lens on the 24 hour a day, 7 days a week life of the Church. The sheer number of people involved and committed to the life and well-being of St Michael & All Angels Bramhall had been an eye-opener to her. We’re grateful that Tricia will continue to bring her energy and enthusiasm to the task of our Growth Action Planning in the coming year, and as we bless and pray for her continuing ministry we thank God, too, for Bob’s, and for that of Churchwardens Ralph Luxon and Sue Taylor. May God bless them, and all of us, richly.
