#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.
#399 #day17 of placement involved a funeral preparation visit. Having been involved in a #funeral in the first week of placement, along with this has given me a real sense of the importance and privilege of #funeralministry. It seems to be one huge act of #service to a family, both in getting the preparations right, but also with pastoral care of mourners long after the funeral, when society expects normal life to have resumed. it’s such an important ministry which is a #privilege and comes with a huge #responsibility.
#292 Last week and this week I have the privilege of serving in my community as duty chapel #sacristan It is a wonderful, quiet act of #service to keep the chapel tidy and make sure all is in place for each service – it’s also a little worrying when you forget something! It is teaching me about the careful #attentiontodetail that I need to develop, somethings which can only be attained by slowing down…very difficult in the busyness of modern day life.
