When two or three are gathered together...

This was how our hotel, the Olive Tree Hotel, looked just before 8 o'clock on Sunday morning, bathed in fog and bitterly cold.

Setting out for St George's Cathedral nearby I was incredibly glad of my thigh-length cable knit socks (under my jeans), my knitted gloves and my dorky-looking Nike (knock off) beanie, all of which I had bought from a stall for the princely sum of 23 shekels (approximately AU$6) the day before.

Inside we were a congregation of two so it was a very intimate Holy Communion service in the side chapel, celebrated by the Rev'd Canon Hosam Naoum, Canon Pastor of the Cathedral.

In case you're wondering, the rest of our group chose to avoid the early morning fog and chill, and enjoy a well-earned lie-in, a leisurely breakfast, and a short walk in the sunshine before going along to the 11am service.
