A Touch of Christmas

While we were in Mandurah recently, we had a few reminders that Christmas was just a few days away.

There was a Christmas crib scene outside Christ’s Church, which was consecrated in 1871 and expanded later, and a nativity scene in the stained glass as well. Merry Christmas!


No Snoring Aloud

We also liked some of the details inside St Michael’s Church in St Albans. The wooden pulpit above dates from late 16th or early 17th century and has all mod cons, including an hour glass to ensure the sermon doesn’t go on for too long.

There is also a 17th century monument to the statesman/scientist Francis Bacon. He is supposedly relaxing, but looks amusingly like he is sleeping through the sermon.
