Getting back to it...
From the sights and sounds of New Orleans, to the wonderful colours of the Caribbean, all punctuated by the wonderful company (is there a gender neutral word for fellowship?) of RevGal colleagues, the last 10 days have been refreshing and renewing. We've laughed together, cried together ( both in joy and sorrow) and simply shared aspects of ministry that others don't "get". And all whilst pursuing some Continuing Ed exploring Spirituality and the Enneagram.
But even more wonderful has been the return to the parish and congregation I currently serve. And the knowledge that, even in these dreich grey Scottish days, it is good to be here. Plunging back in, countering jet lag, it is affirming to embrace and to be embraced by the people of God in this place. Having stepped back to examine ministry and to gain perspective, I find that I am "surprised by joy". Thanks be to God.
