First Baptism

I was absolutely over the moon to baptise my first child today. Words like "humbled" and "privileged" sometimes sound very trite when we talk about them in ministry, but today I really did feel those things... and more! I led the service and my colleague Andy did the necessary blessings and prayers over the water, …

Day 250

I started this year with a commitment to post something to my blog every day, and today marks the 250th day in a row I've shared with you on the Mushy Cloud. There has been just one day where I had a "guest" contributor, and that was my husband on the day that I was …

I want to share with you a version of a worship song that I've come to know and love in recent years. The version I have for you today is new to me, and was used by my friend Jane in her Sunday morning service yesterday. It is by Hillsong and the graphics on this …

Holiday – Day 5: Melrose

We have had bad weather threatened for the last couple days, with the heaviest of the rainfall due today. So far, the predictions have been wrong and we have had lots of sunshine and clear (ish) blue skies for the most part. We had a touch of rain in places yesterday but all in all, …
