Retreat

#699 #ordinationretreat begins here with #mixedemotions I am #signingoff from photographic reflections. Prayers for all on retreat and being ordained this weekend. May the Lord bless us and keep us, may he make His face to shine upon us and be gracious to us. Amen. 

お箸

#698 #ohashi translates as #chopsticks and #bridge in #Japanese. I began the day listening to #bridgeovertroubledwater #forgrenfell and was thinking about what and who might act as a bridge in troubled times. This beautiful song encourages #hope and #solidarity and felt to me like an #actoflove – a #bridge in more ways than one!

Taking things for granted

#697 Following two days without power I’ve found out how #essential a #washingmachine is…especially after returning from holiday! #donttakeanythingforgranted

Cold feet

#696 #coldfeet Terry Waite wrote about the significance of feeling the ground, the earth, under our feet as we walk to be better connected with the natural world. There is something beautifully energising about walking #barefoot through the grass, sand or even the sea…#giveitago 

Ordination part 1

#695 The first #ordinationceremony of #petertide – it was a #joy and #privilege to see these beautiful people ordained #deacon! #prayers for all who are recently ordained, and those preparing for ordination over the coming week. 

Bad start

#694 #thegreatoutdoors #cookingbreakfast in the #rain did not seem to be so much of a challenge…packing the tent away in the rain failed to bring the same positivity! #badstarttotheday – sometimes things get the better of me and that’s okay. 

Lift up your hearts

#693 #middayeucharist with #stpaulscathedraldundee was a lovely #oasis in the busyness of the past few weeks #liftupyourhearts 

Rain

#692 The sound of #rainonthetent when camping brings mixed feelings of wonder at being #closertonature as well as #apprehension that everything will stay dry! Ultimately it’s part of that experience of the #greatoutdoors which draws me closer to #god 

The Shack
