An interesting illustration from Gubbins this evening.
He put some perfume on his hand, shook hands with Young Keith, asked Keith to shake hands with someone else, and then for everyone to share the Peace.
At the end of the peace-sharing, he asked us all to smell our hands. Sure enough, we all smelt of perfume.
Gubbins explained that this shows that, if we share the love of God with others, it will permeate throughout the whole community. Which is quite a nice point. But all I could think was, "that could have been anthrax."
