A Christmas SatRev

A little surprising this - or maybe not.

We used the "Satrev" technology to track a rural vicar as he went between his six churches' carol and Christingle services, eight school carol concerts, three nursing homes, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree.
And it came out looking just like the Star of Bethlehem! Who would have thought it?

The bad news for the vicar is that he's the kind that doesn't like to let people down. So as all his churches want a Midnight Mass, same as every year, he's taking a service starting on the hour, every hour from 8pm on Christmas Eve till 1am on Christmas Day. And then starting again at 7am for another six Christmas Morning services. In normal years the good news would be then he'd have a day or two off. But not this year. Oh, no. This year there's just the six Sunday Morning services as well, although only two churches still demand evensong. So he's got off a little lightly, when you think about it.

  1. I sincerely hope the wardens and PCC members who voted for this will be at all the services and dragging others along too...
