Am in a rush to get out as we’re off to Surrey today to help Daughter 2 with housemoving.

But thought I would leave you with a small insight into what really happens when the vicar climbs into the pulpit to preach his sermon ….

Meanwhile, play nicely, children … if you don’t, I shall know, you know Β  Β 



      1. Depends how boring the sermon is … it might even send the preacher off to sleep, in which case something strong and sudden might be called for πŸ˜‰


      2. :)) Gosh there is suddenly so much width and spaaaaaaace!! And all sort of pale peachy and a nice picture! A whole nooo look! πŸ™‚

        Tequila, as well as being strong and sudden, can make one very bendy 8| I recall suddenly being able to do the splits with great aplomb so I proceeded to do so, repeatedly, delighted at the newness of the experience. 😳


      3. I’ve done lots of things in services in my time 88| but haven’t tried the splits … yet πŸ˜‰

        I discovered that the old design on my blog was chopping off a third of some of my pictures, and Spicey told me it was because I had it in 3 columns, so I decided to go the whole hog and change it altogether!


      4. Well it looks lovely! Nice and spacious and plenty of room!

        Would be quite surprising to do the splits in a service! I wouldn’t recommend it πŸ˜‰ but that is why not to have the Tequila πŸ˜‰ but we could try it together in Heaven and see if we can do the splits there perhaps! πŸ™‚


  1. Super cartoon.

    Funnily enough, I was recently in a church that has undergone renovation. The pulpit was much the same shape as drawn, and from the ‘working view’ had all sorts of controls visible. My imagination buzzed a bit, though I didn’t devise an emergency cord….good one that.

    I wonder if the pulpit, as drawn, if used to its fullest extent, would set off water sprinklers. A hymn could be devised around ‘It’s raining cats and dogs’. πŸ˜‰


    1. :)) Now that’s a seriously good suggestion! – except, of course, if you’re in the situation that many clergy are in – of being landed with an old building that’s not fit for purpose … in which case, no sprinklers, no fire hydrants and a brown envelope for the diocesan arsonist πŸ˜‰


      1. A bit of circumspection might be called for here – a care to what is wished for. That said, has anyone given any thought to the size the brown envelope ought to be?



  2. Ha! Very funny, Gilly. I love the mini-bar. And the ‘clap of thunder’ button – just in case any of the parishioners commit a brazen act of blasphemy.
    I assume the ‘pew buzzing console’ is aimed at anyone is falling asleep during the service.

    I’ve printed it out for my neighbour, the good pastor. He’s very high church but has a great sense of humour.
