The first Sunday in October is Harvest. It’s that time of year and, for all its anachronism, it is still observed by us and most congregations. We are raised in thanksgiving, trained in it, and practice it every Sabbath. So, here again, wheat, fields, hedgerows, rivers, forests and seas, though this year against the back-drop of Extinction Rebellion, the new protest on our streets, bringing a greater than ever urgency. A fuller St Giles choir will lead the evening singing, and then will come some wine.
