Mac McLernon, whose excellent blog site Mulier Fortis is well worth periodic visits, asks - see her comment following A Lenten Laugh below - whether I have given up posting for Lent. The answer to this is that I've been somewhat absorbed with writing what in a different context would be called a homily. In this context it rejoices under the name of an 'address or meditation on the theme' at an interdenominational Women's World Day of Prayer service here in Ely. (As a mere male, I feel privileged to have been so invited although I do wonder at the selection criteria employed.) Being unaccustomed to such activity, it has taken me rather longer than it would (or indeed could) if homily writing were a more regular part of my life.
