On the 5th we served the Liturgy and had the indoor blessing of water. On the 6th some hardy souls braved the biting damp and wind and went to Brayford pool in Lincoln. This is an old Roman harbour in the middle on the City. It is also where St. Chad baptised the people of Lincoln. We blessed the waters after which we went to the local cafe to warm up.

When You, O Lord, were baptized in the Jordan,

the worship of the Trinity was made manifest.

For the voice of the Father bore witness to You,

calling You His Beloved Son;

and the Spirit in the form of a dove

confirmed the truthfulness of His word.

O Christ our God, You have revealed Yourself,

and have enlightened the world, glory to You.
