Blessing of the Sea

It was a pretty soggy Blessing of the Sea this year with pouring rain all day but we prayed over the sea and we praised the Lord of earth and sky and see in St.Mary’s Church. Our thanks to The Rt Revd Karen Gorham, Bishop of Sherborne for being with us. She rooted her address firmly in the realities of our marvellous Poole Harbour affirmed all those who depend on the sea for their living. We prayed for those for whom the sea is a source of destruction through flooding.

But we kept smiling – well Richard did

…though some of us couldn’t bear to look!
