What a lovely children's service we had today. Would especially like to say the portrayal of the story of Noah was charming.
Poor little Alfie the Unicorn- forgot what day the Flood was, and left behind at the end as the Ark sailed off. Not a dry eye I'm not sure if the Genesis account does include Alfie's bodily assumption into heaven. But if it doesn't, it ought to. I'm sure the Pope could sort something out.
And of course it was important that, just as the waves lapped at Alfie's feet, God intervened like that. Because it reinforced the message that there is always a happy ending, because we're worth it.
And Alfie was a real winner with the kids. A three-foot tall, plush unicorn with a winning look. Makes you wonder how Noah could ever forget such a sweety.
