The Diocesan Secretary, The Revd David Dadswell spoke about meeting many committed Lay People in his first year in the Lincoln Diocese. We had a very dramatic form bible reading from 2 Timothy 3, before Bishop Nicholas asked us to think about how what we had heard resonated with us?  During the 2nd part of the Lay Celebration, the Bishop of Lincoln - Admitted & Licenced four new Readers. He  also  Licenced one Reader  upon transfer from Ely Diocese. The Bishop of Grantham preached the sermon and encouraged a shared identity in our task of mission and ministry - whether Clergy or Lay.  Bishop Nicholas quoted writer Alan Bennett and suggested that we should be  ‘Keeping On Keeping On’. After the Service, folk were able to chat over a welcome drink and a slice of cake! The Association of Lincoln Readers 77th AGM followed in Edward King House at 12.30pm.
