The One and Only…

#654 A #popular local attraction and amazing to see so many people flock to the one and only Cuddesdon #churchfete for a #senseofcommunity #tradition or perhaps just #intrigue Nevertheless, it was fantastic to see so many people in one place, enjoying the beautiful #surroundings and #hospitality

Hospitality

Chalking the door

Tea ceremony 

#526 #machamoment 魔茶 #japaneseteaceremony is a beautiful way to show #hospitality through tradition and ritual. It’s giving the best you have and observing appropriate etiquette on what to say and what not to say. It’s really lovely to prepare as I consider how Jesus contributed to hospitality at the #weddingatcana for my #sundaysermon #john2v1to11 

Posada

#514 #posada2016 #maryandjoseph came to stay with us today and were welcomed with a cup of tea with their previous host. Taking time to enjoy one another’s company is a lovely gift to give and receive, especially at #christmas. #Thanks to Rosie for this photograph. 

Hospitality 

#438 #hospitality today in the form of #openday. It is always a #pleasure to welcome prospective ordinands into this space that we are privileged to look after! Today I #pray for all exploring #priestlyvocations as well as those discerning next steps. May they hear God’s voice above all else. Amen. 

You’re in my seat!


#380 This is a perfect example of #youreinmyseat…cats are so territorial, part of me wants to question why, and then I looks round #localpubs, #restaurants with regular customers, my Dad at #home and even #church. It seems that so many of us are guilty of finding a spot we like, for whatever reason, and sticking with it. Those who have ever worked in offices will usually have worked at specific desks, and I remember how difficult life was as a teacher with no fixed classroom and living out of a series of boxes!! #ourspace is often so important, but when it becomes clicky, and leads us to talk to the same people, and stop looking round to welcome others (particularly in church, perhaps) our ownership of space can be damaging. My partner and I were moved in a church we went to a few months back, because the women who always sat there were unable to adapt…#hosptalitygonewrong perhaps?

#230 This week I am on placement with the #chaplains in the Centre for Faith and Spirituality @lborouniversity Brilliant to be working with, and learning from, these amazing people. Their #hospitality and #servantheart is greatly appreciated by staff and students alike in this place. (at Loughborough University)

#220 Guest night again at college, a time for #hospitality, #formality and #service. A time where you dress in your best as a guest or humbly serve your colleagues as a server. It truly is a marvellous part of formation, both bringing an opportunity #toserve and learning how #tobeserved (at Cuddesdon)
