Having preached a (slightly) shorter sermon last night, why is it that I still didn't get home until later than I usually do?
Anyway, that's not the point of this post. When I got home last night, Ms GadgetVicar and I discussed which Political Party we each might vote for in Thursday's elections. Much to my surprise, I found that we were both thinking along the same lines in terms of our first votes.
We used to belong to the same political party up until five or six years ago. We grew disillusioned, both with the party and with politics in general. We would now be described as 'floating voters', and have voted for several different parties in the intervening years.
This time round it appears that neither of us will be voting for a party with the words 'Christian', 'Labour' or 'Conservative' in their names. We are as one, then. However, we are not as one when it comes to the second vote. Oh, no! Nor do we have to be, of course. Nor will we be, for we are both determined people. But I do believe she is very, very wrong and that her vote will bring about the onset of the Apocalypse.
That'll be the single bed for me tonight, I guess.
