It has been a wonderful experience of ministry this week, and reflecting on it now, I'm thinking about the number of people I have encountered and the myriad emotions I've experienced with them all.

View From the PamCam


I've had a really interesting couple of days this week doing bits and pieces in my parish ministry, but one of the most interesting was adding captions to a lyric video for us to use in church this weekend. The original song is quite fast paced, and so it stretched my brain a bit working …
