In the Middle

I was duly given the stern advice that one should get one’s priorities right – especially in ministry.
God first, then the church, all else follows.
My immediate response was of God third at least!!
A much better response however was given by means of a meditation in chapel yesterday.
God in the middle. Strangely, this was echoed from a very surprising source. While getting frustrated and annoyed at the original comment I was reminded that really the ministry of those ordained or such was based on the biblical understanding of things and that the life and teachings of Jesus were all about people, rather than about God so much. Not bad for a reluctant ordinand’s wife casually commenting over a hot saucepan!
So no priority for ‘God’, just God in and through everything – in the midst of it all with dirty hands!


‘The most important visit of the year’ said someone…
Well it certainly was a real eye opener.

90 mins a 1200 degrees whether you like it or not! The real gut crunching moment came when they were talking about cleaning the insides – re-bricking etc. Not a job for the nervous.

Although a good visit to reassure the uneasy bereaved, I shall be buried in a wood under a tree!

I mean, 90 mins is a bit quick to depart in!


There are many things to be done post-portfolio – like buying a car!
Of course, things like that can wait, especially when you discover the toys on Microsoft’s (sorry excuse the bad language!) web site.

Aerial view of new house

Add that to the site plan from Watkin Jones and voila one aerial map of the new house!!
I hope the roof really isn’t green 😉
One day we might even go there!!
