Random rambles from a village minister:3
As anyone knows, I am in the village panto. I tend to drop it into most conversations casually and unobtrusively about 18 times in the first 3 minutes.
So there I was at a practice, minding my own business (not true: I have been accused of ‘working’ most environments in this village. My defence: I love seeing what is going on in peoples lives), working hard- trying to make my character less cardboard than the scenery. I kept being interrupted: the first by a long running saga from earlier on in the night involving a child at youth group, next by someone else going through something very painful and finally by another character who thought religion was nonsense so wanted to know how I felt ‘called’.
Of course, I could have been at a meeting doing so much more valuable work for the kingdom…
