Last week as I was going home on Saturday night: in intended to stop in at the Collective (see below important work), I was waylaid by an important pastoral concern. We stopped in at the Collective and had some soup. After I had been to the chemist, with my concern, and dropped her off...I witnessed an act of violence....a 20 year something guy...smacking a young woman across the face. Not once, or even twice!
I blocked the road with my lights on high beam...another youngish guy waved me through as if this is just what happened.
Thank goodness the taxi driver on the other side of the road rang the cops (I hope).
Cannot help but think..........this is not like my last parish.!And the rubber is hitting the road
