My daughter’s vicar is new and very marketing savvy. I like her, and particularly for that.
In her editorial piece in the parish magazine, she has tackled head-on the issues of correct behaviour in these times of Coronavirus. Firstly, members of the congregation can refuse the communion wine, which usually comes from the same cup whence others have taken sips. Deep cleaning after each communicant isn't possible. Very sensible.
Secondly, maybe don’t shake hands at ‘The Peace’. Good thinking!
But when handwashing, she also recommends not to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ twice, but say the Lord’s Prayer.

What a great idea! She isn't Dawn French is she? Certainly reminds me of something you'd see in Dibley. Sensible, thoughtful woman!

She has a certain similarity with Ms French (framewise) and she’s fun. She was very good too about moving aside to let the Bishop take my daughter’s wedding. She didn’t seem to mind... or didn’t show it. I think she’s a tonic for the C of E.
