100 days – Day 98: The Joys of Ministry
At the end of last year, I agreed to conduct the marriage service for a bride who works in my old place of business – the wedding to take place a week today.
Looking through my diary last night to check next week’s workload, I came across the event – but with no time written in.
Phoned…. the conversation was “Hello, it’s Sandy Strachan. Is everything still OK for next Friday?” And she hung up on me!
Tried again, and her phone – indeed for the rest of the evening – was on voice mail mode.
I’ve just been in touch with the Registrar….. and, surprise! surprise!… the wedding is still on for next Friday; all the paperwork has been handed in…… BUT, surprise! Somebody else is now conducting the ceremony!
Whatever happened to courtesy, good manners, and truthfulness?
