Tomorrow I am doing a communion service in a small inland village about 10 miles away direct or 15 miles if you avoid the very narrow lanes. The church is lovely with beautiful grounds. Until a year or so ago this parish would not have a woman priest officiating. They were very cool when I turned for someone elses service. Now they greet me with open arms and a lot of laughter. Their sister church nearby will still not have any women so they only have one communion a month.
"They don't know what they're missing" says Marge dismissively.
It is a great pleasure to go there and even more to be breaking new ground.
