Beauty of friendship

#640 #threeoldfriends #threeteacups and plenty of cakes! The beauty of relationships which never change…true friendship is measured not by time spent together, but by the strength of the bond when they are there.

Judge or forgive?

#376 To be #inquisitive or too keen is something which can be perceived as negative when meeting people for the first time. It’s often not socially acceptable to ask strangers lots of questions about themselves…so how do we cross the boundary from strangers to #friendship? How do we cultivate good relationships with others? How do we discern that it is alright to share a little more of yourself with this person? What happens when we get this wrong…are we #forgiving of other people’s faux pas or #judgemental? 

Seeing God in each other

#359 #beautifulbaking and #beautifulfriends God is #relational and has created us to be so too. The pleasure that friendships bring always amazes me, although it perhaps shouldn’t as God reveals himself to us through others. Today I #thankgod for #friendship.

Croquet on the lawn


#285 What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than playing #croquet on the lawn and drinking #ginandtonic in the #sunshine at theological college?! Taking time to relax in the sun is good for the soul, and it gives us the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of God’s #creation: #sun #nature #friendship and #laughter

Speech!

#283 Preparations for my last guest night speech! This evening was our last guest night of the academic year, and my final guest night as President of the Common Room. As I wrote my speech, I began to think about the huge privilege to have served the college community in this role, and how much I have enjoyed it. How Dr Who’s Amy Pond, cat treats, a bottle of port and a bunch of flowers all link up is one of life’s little mysteries! Today I thank God for #community, #friendship and #service.
