Going Out

Despite the weather forecasters' promise there would be no more snow today,
we awoke to see the mesmerising flakes already weaving their swirling warp and weft
 into a deeper pile for the white carpet underfoot.

We hummed and hawed a bit,
 then headed out to morning communion as we regularly do midweek.

The church's ageing heating system chugged away in the background
 barely denting the cold.

Still it was good to be with the community of believers.

Good to meet around the sacraments,
 the central presence which draws us together.

Good to catch up with each other over coffee,
then help set up for mums and toddlers
before emerging again into
 the cold pale world.
