Sublime to the ridiculous

I often think that many people don’t realise the mental gear changes that go with the work of a Minister. Today has been a good example…………

I began the day with a Cemeteries Committee at Birchwood, nipped over to Sutton to put a cheque into the bank (and buy Alison a Valentines card), back to sermon writing and a quick nap, a special meal with Alison for Valentines day (won’t have time tomorrow), and then articles for the Circuit magazine. Somewhere in the middle of this afternoon I also answered the telephone to a request to bless a wedding ring about to be purchased to replace a lost one (after 40+ years).

On any other day I could have added into this mix a visit to the hospital, Maple Leaf House and any sort of pastoral visit.

This is what makes this calling to Ministry both frenetic and busy, alongside exciting and exhilarating. You wake up every morning with your plans made out, and no gaurantee that they`re not going to change. WONDERFUL !!
