My Recollection Of Chelmsford
(My wife will tell you!)
ĎYes thatís true! About ten years ago my husband James, was invited
to preach at a Special service in Chelmsford Cathedral. Animal welfare
groups had been invited as well. I remember the cathedral was full of
people and children. The Mayor and Mayoress , local M.P. and a girls
choir were also there, and other clergy too.
The service went well and at the appropriate time my husband was
escorted to the pulpit. He began to preach with much gusto and
eventually came round to explaining his stand on the treatment of
animals and the battery system. As it was the 2nd December he
explained how everyone should become vegetarian and help save the planet
and help save themselves from disease as well, or at least buy
free-range chicken, turkey and eggs for their Christmas meals.
Well, at this point five or six mature ladies got onto their feet and
stalked out of the cathedral in disgust; one being a parsonís wife next
to me. I couldnít believe it! However, it was amazing, because once they
had left and James sermon was coming to a close, loud cheers went up and
everyone started clapping. So all was not lost! Then, in the hall
afterwards people were anxious to meet James and learn more. Later in
the evening we were guests at a vegetarian venue attended by our
gracious host, Pamela Townsend, and some dignitariesí.
