But I couldn't resist posting this.
OK. Confession re the bulletin below:
In 1990, I found in the "Weekly Notices" Archives deep in the office at St Barnabas' Broadway the bulletin from 13th September 1970. I was good friends with Michael Jensen from school and university, and that particular bulletin was the notice that announced his safe birth.
The note says: "Michael Jensen joined the Rectory Staff last Monday, expected home from hospital with his mother shortly. Both are well."
His father preached that evening. Barry Newman preached the following Sunday.
So I "borrowed" the Bulletin to show Michael. And then I never returned it. That is my confession. I’ve been meaning to return it for 15 years.
One of the things that you lose in a fire like this is old bulletins and notices and archives.
This is one of the tragedies.
But one thing is not lost: The Bulletin from 13 September 1970.
Now, here is my question: Who should I return this bulletin to?
A. Ian Powell and St Barnabas?
B. Michael Jensen and family?
C. The Archbishop and family?
