One thought on “Trim Valley Notices : w/c 15 April 2018

  1. No wonder Rev’d Nathan is moving. He has been used and abused so much by the Trim Valley Benefice, I’m surprised that he isn’t retiring wounded. If I were him (thankfully I’m not( I’d borrow a shotgun and go around the troublesome parishioners before I left and settle a few scores.

    Failing that, a bucket of sheeps blood being painted on the entrance to all homes, where parishioners have supported Rev’d Nathan in his ministry, so that when the plagues from the Lord strike the unworthy, they will be taken with a vengeance, If it was good enough for Egypt, it must be good enough for the Trim Valley Benefice.
