Revolting Rhymes
Three Little Pigs

On the evening of Thursday 23 March, I went, with a few of my friends, to visit Easby's Guild. We were there to help Rebecca tell some stories in rhyme. Sabre, a wolf, helped tell the stories of Little Red Riding Hood and, with the assistance of an unnamed pig, the Three Little Pigs. Jemima had told the story of Cinderella and Jedidiah the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. There weren't just poems from Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes; I performed a poem of Rebecca's own creation: the alternative story of Macbeth. Rebecca told me she wrote the poem while she was studying Macbeth at school.
Pat Nelson started the evening with prayers and talking about talents. We also remembered the people caught up in the attack on Westminster Bridge one year ago, who were able to use their skills to keep others safe. We sang the hymn "Give me the faith, which can remove", which spoke about using our talents and gifts to the glory of God. After we had told a few stories, there was a chance to meet and find out, over generous selection of sweet and savoury snacks, the gifts and talents of others gathered there.

Easby Guild meets most Thursday evenings from 7.15pm. You can find the full programme here. Not all of my friends had a chance to share their stories so we have been invited back next year to tell some more stories. I am looking forward to it already!
