Filling a Niche in the Church

News from the good people at St Mary's, Great Tremlett.

Years now, literally, they've had those six empty niches in the church. You know the sort I mean? They were built to hold the little statues of saints in the days before the Reformation. And then the saints were thrown out, leaving empty niches. Since when they've occasionally held flower vases or tea lights.

But the people at St Mary's wanted something more radical. They decided they were going to put statues back. But which ones? They needed people whose holiness, doctrinal rightness, personal sanctity and brilliant proclamation of the Gospel were beyond doubt.

No problem really. They've filled the niches with statues of the last six rectors. Revd Nathan must be happy.
