Pear Tree Fellowship

 

The Pear Tree Fellowship

I mentioned last month that I remembered Stewart Timbrell as being amusing but he was actually hilarious and gave us a very amusing afternoon for our May meeting.

He had been told to work with children and old people. He found the children very difficult and decided to take them on a Field Walk. They asked him the names of all the common plants and he didn't know any of them.

He didn't have much more success with old people. The man he met just ignored him until one day he started to tell Stewart about all the flora and fauna and their medicinal properties. He told him which books to read and Stewart was hooked and proceeded to learn all about herbs and the history of medicine. It wasn't so much his subject but just the way he told it.

Next month we shall have a talk from Mike Lee in our Congregation. He will tell us what Life is like with Keller, a Guide Dog, whom we all see when they both go up to the Altar for Communion on a Sunday. It should be very interesting.
