As I posted on the Chair of Peter (when I beat Simon to the computer!), we were having an International Supper that evening. It turned out to be a wonderful occassion of fraternity, not least with everyone piling into the main kitchen to prepare their various offerings during the afternoon, and then washing up afterwards (something we don't have occassion to do very often!). It was also nice for the dometic staff to be treated to supper for a change.
The food was as diverse as the community, including Irish stew, Vietnamese spring rolls, Indian curry, and Italian tiramisu to name a few things - there were also Spanish, Czech and German dishes which were great but I can't remember what they were called! I made some Oatmeal Chocolate chip cookies as the American contingent, but they stuck to the baking trays and had to be prized off...
All in all a wonderful evening!
Ecce quam bonum et quam iucundum
habitare fratres in unum:
sicut unguentum optimum in capite,
quod descendit in barbam, barbam Aaron,
"How good and how pleasant it is
when brothers live in unity!
It is like precious oil upon the head
running down upon the beard,
running down upon Aaron's beard
upon the collar of his robes." Psalm 132 (133)
