    True, not much to do about it until there is an election. firstfloor is scouting out places of religious significance for your UK tour; I think you might like Tewkesbury Abbey. Is incense used much in your own church services?

    I think Baptists are allergic to incense. Maybe you can find him an historic nonconforming church or two to visit.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    Reminds us old Baptists too much of the 60's and early 70's where it was used to mask (cough sputter) other 'fragrances'.

    Scottish appeals court rules suspension of Parliament is unlawful. Meaning that, like Trump, Boris is an evil tyrant.

    On 11 September the Court of Session, the supreme civil court of Scotland, ruled that the prorogation was unlawful, but did not give an order to cancel it pending a hearing at the Supreme Court which was scheduled for 17 September.

    Has nothing to do with Boris being a tyrant. That's your editorializing.

    Truro Cathedral, Victorian with neo-gothic architecture. Cornwall was one of the poorest parishes in England when this was built.
