I was with a friend tonight who thought it could be a great laugh to have a group of them cheering me on at the licensing in November. I'm not sure if she means pompoms and rara skirts, or human pyramids, or excitable chants in a Taize styley; who knows but it is so nice to know I have "cheerleaders" both within and without the church.
So it got me thinking; in a late night, over tired, comical way.
Would there be t-shirts?
Could I wear one under my cassock?
What design would they be?
Perhaps with the multi coloured LLM logo on that so many of us would love to adopt?
Or maybe a slogan such as "Emma for God".
I have only twice in my life worn a t-shirt as a group; both times in the USA and with bestest friends who convinced me to. I like the idea, but also have the reserved British thing of not wanting to stand out. (yes, I know, it'll be obvious which one I am at licensing).
But Rachel on the other hand, now she loves a T-shirt she can design herself in her choice of colours. Perhaps pink with yellow writing, I can see it now.
So what would her custom t-shirt say?
I envisage ....
"My Mum Works For God."
