Privilege?

#448 Lovely #sunsets at Cuddesdon remind me of how privileged I am to be able to afford the time to bask in the beauty of #God and #creation. #grateful 

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. 

Funeral ministry

#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. 

Privilege of presence

#342 The #privilege of #presence, sitting and praying with those in the end stages of life. “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.” #John14v27

Priestly ministry

#340 #ordinationofpriests #dioceseofleicester The #privilege of the priestly ministry! Prayers for all ordained #priest today.

Sacristan duty

#296 As sacristan duty comes to an end, this is the last time I will prepare for the morning #Eucharist. It is a real #privilege to work behind the scenes, and to quietly #serve – I’ve enjoyed it immensely!

Service as slowing down

#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.
