Service of Prayer and Blessing St Lawrence Jewry 8th November

This was the final event - a traditional service in the nearby church of St Lawrence Jewry at the edge of Guildhall Yard to bless the new Lord Mayor.  The Chaplain to the Lord Mayor is The Reverend Lizzy Woolf, so Fiona's ordained daughter led the service which was well attended.  Particularly good to see many members of our own Company. All the hymns were sung remarkably well and I have to say St Lawrence has a terrific organ - only installed in 2000.  I have heard the Revd Canon David Parrott delivering sermons before - they are always excellent and not without amusement.   I reflected that this church, like many livery halls, has had a difficult history - totally destroyed in the Great Fire and Wrens replacement very seriously damaged in the Blitz.

A long day and the Lord Mayor's Show in the morning!  Let's hope for better weather but the weather forecast on television as I write is unfortunately not good.  Are we finally going to get wet tomorrow having had good luck in recent years?
