The smell of fish

Our house smells of fish. This is my fault.

Today was Harvest Thankgiving at St. Stephen’s and yours truly got to preach. We decided to switch the reading to John 6:1-13 – the feeding of the five thousand – after seeing the wonderful harvest loaf that was very kindly made for us by students at Birmingham College of Food, Tourism and Creative Studies, depicting the five loaves and two fish.

It occurred to me that I had rarely if ever seen a preacher use real fish as visual aids when preaching on this passage and, as this was an all-age type service, decided that something had to be done about this. Five mini mince pies and two fillets of rainbow trout. Now I know why most people use cardboard fish!
