in ordine ambulabant. aditus semitae fuit quasi fornix tendens in cuniculum caligineum a duabus arborius factum, quae ad se acclinabant, nimis ueteres et hedera strangulatae et lichene uestitae ut magis quam pauca folia nigrata no pararent.  semita ipsa fuit angusta et inter truncos intrinsecus et extrinsecus se insinuabat.

Hobbitus ille aut illue atque rursus retrorsum.

in foramine terrae habitabat hobbitus: nec foedum, sordidum madidumque foramen. nec extremis lumbricorum atque odore caenoso impletum, nec etiam foramen aridum, inane, harenosumin quo nihil etat ad considendum aut edendum aptum; immo foramen hobbitum, ergo commodum.

quo ianuam omnino rotundam, fenestrae nauis similem, uiridem pictam cum bulla aeraria flauenteque in media accurate defixa habuit, aperta est ianua in atrieum tubulatum, cuniculo simile: cuniculus autem commodissimus, non fumidus, cum pareitibus lacunatis et solis pauimentatis et tapetis tectis, qui sellis expolitis et plurimis uncis ad petasos amiculaque suspendenda ornatus est - nam hospites hobbito placebant. 

Licensed Lay Minister

Mr. James Larminie, B.Sc.
I have been worshipping at All Saints Church since 1980, and been a Licensed Lay Minister since 1987. Professionally I am an engineer, and have worked in industry, and for a good while as a lecturer at nearby Oxford Brookes University. 

I help lead our services of worship, preach sometimes, but am also a very practical person, and do many jobs around church with drill or voltmeter as well as in the LLM blue scarf.  My family, which now includes grand-children, occupies much of my attention, as well as cycling, which I do both to get about and for fun.
