The clocks went forward today, the start of British Summer Time and I almost missed church. I was in so much of a rush that I completely missed the essence of Mothering Sunday.
I also heard on the news that an imminent total lockdown was expected in Shanghai almost three years since the first lockdown in China and wondered about this Covid19 thing and how we were all going to continue to live with it.
But today was the first time back for a person-to-person service at London Gadangme Speaking Fellowship and I knew I had to be there after two whole years of worshipping via zoom. We tried a hybrid service, now that all restrictions have been lifted in Britain, we could not be more careful and worshipped under strict covid protocols. We struggled with the equipment but in the end, it was alright for the many faithful who went to test what it was all like meeting again in the flesh. Good and uplifting service.
After church, I thought to do the usual and went visiting my good friend Mr James Barnor and got him to sign his latest coffee table book for me.

Well, I hope that we do not go back into lockdown here and that life continues in the new normal for us.
