Language Exchange In Spain For Week Of Prayer

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity service on the Mediterranean coast of Spain proved a challenge in overcoming language differences.

Jenny Hoskins, who is a Reader in training at St Christopher’s Anglican church on the Costa Azahar gave a short address at the United service in Vinaros (north of Valencia) with the additional demands of preaching in Spanish. The area is on the borderline of two cultures in Spain and Jenny also has to grapple with the local Catalan language in daily life!

There was some compensation when a Spanish choir gave a splendid rendition of Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus in English!
