Installing the Provost

It turned into something of an SEC bloggers’ night out.  It’s interesting to meet people whom you think you know because you read what they choose to blog about in the night hours ..  The service was, of course, extraordinary.  Wonderful music – a real treat – and many signs of Kelvin’s flair for liturgy and the big occasion.  Well – there was one completely OTT moment.  To sing Parry’s ‘I was glad’ as Bishop Idris led Kelvin to his stall?  It’s fine in Westminster Abbey when you are wearing a crown and stuff.  So what would have been better?  Not ‘Sheep may safely graze’, I think.  As always, I ponder my belonging and not belonging.  It was liturgically a long long way from Portadown!  But a great gathering of the SEC family and I feel increasingly part of that.
