St John the Baptist Parish Church, Malden - an inclusive Anglican Church in Worcester Park, South West London
Can anyone beat this - last year when collecting, knocking on a door a gentleman answered and when told I was collecting for Christian Aid and had left an envelope if they wished to give anything (asked very pleasantly with a nice smile) he replied "Oh yes, Christian Aid" went back into the house I thought to get the envelope - it took me about five minutes to realise he wasn't coming out again. Can't win them all can we, but we can keep on trying. A friend at work suggested I returned in the morning with a seat and waited for him to leave for work but I thought that was going too far!
As a general comment on your blog which I enjoy reading you might find it useful to set up a "latest comments" box in the right hand margin. As the number of posts in your blog increases comments to older posts tend to go unseen by blog readers. To set up a latest comments box (which I myself have just worked out how to do), from the blog dashboard select "layout" , then "add a gadget" then scroll down and select "feed", then in the box that appears type in the blog's address http://stjohnschurchmalden.blogspot.com/ enter that then in the next screen change St John's blog to "latest comments" and save it. having done that whenever a comment is approved by a moderator and posted to the blog the blog will send a message to itself saying its received a comment and that will appear in the box in the right hand margin. Look at my own blog as an example of how it looks.
Thanks Parkerilla. I'll get onto that.Good to have you as a follower of the blog - although we can't match yours for diversity! Where do you get all you ideas? :-)
