Going into Service: the Downton Abbey Moment

Julian Fellowes captured the minds and hearts of our nation when he created the “Downton Abbey” Television Series. Like one of the wealthy characters in the series, he presents an image of a grand life in the public sphere.

But what was it really like to be one of the downstairs folk in a world of “Upstairs, Downstairs”?  What does it take to sign on for service?

These are the opening thoughts for next Sunday’s service at Carryduff at 10:30 am. Do join us.

Mark 10:44-45
