I seem to worry absolutely everything these days; but given my experience in schools I could never have imagined becoming so stressed about doing an assembly in an infant school. When the head asked me to do something about Trinity Sunday I blithely said ‘yes’. It was only later when I realised that Trinity Sunday is the only Christian celebration not based on an event that I started worrying about having to explain the purely doctrinal concept of the Holy Trinity to five-year olds.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby who took part in the Coventry Diocese centenary celebrations at the beginning of this month, asked us to join in with a global wave of prayer called 'Thy Kingdom Come'. This eleven days of prayer from the day after Ascention Day (11th May) ending at Pentecost (20th May) asked us to pray for five of our family and friends who we feel would benefit from following Jesus more closely.
