Bishop Karen visited Swanage for a Confirmation service last Sunday and nine candidates were confirmed. It was a very happy occasion and the Bishop, speaking from the Gospel of the day, and the sending out of the twelve disciples by Jesus, two by two, emphasised that we should not be concerned at starting with small resources - the disciples were encouraged to travel light. She spoke of the disciples not working individually, but in pairs, and being part of a team. So the whole congregation was sent out for service in the world, carrying the light of Christ.
