Good Friday

The cross itself is missing from the top of the churchyard cross at Bradley which is a listed building and scheduled monument all in its own right (picture taken yesterday) so I showed those who came for a service there yesterday a picture of what it might have looked like (picture taken in Berkhamsted recently). When I arrived in the parish there was no Good Friday service in the small village, but for the last eleven years we’ve had one in the otherwise unused 5.00 p.m. slot in the day and do it gathered around the cross; this approach has caught the imagination of some and there were seventeen of us there yesterday (which is about twice the size of the average Sunday congregation).
