Nothing quite so profound as the post title might suggest – I was just quite intrigued yesterday evening by the fact that, for the second communion service in a row and notwithstanding a bigger-than-usual evening congregation, the stewards had prepared beforehand exactly the right number of little glasses.

    It’s the same thing with bring and share lunches too, isn’t it… Somehow there is always enough, even though few people actually say that they will bring something. But when lunch time comes there is just enough to go around.
    When I am preparing the table as deacon or when presiding single-handed I aim to put just too much out – a faint reflection of God’s unasked-for genorosity plus as a symbol that the church is bigger than just the (very) few of us gathered there in that building today.
