PamBook – 16th June


Today is… 16th June 2021 What I’ve been up to today… I’ve had a really varied day today. It began with some admin chasing up my Deacon’s stole, then an enquiry about the burial of some ashes, and booking a minister for the service. Then I was interviewed by a journalist for the Church Times …

A New Look at a Familiar Story


We have been looking at the story of the Good Samaritan this week as part of our “Fruitfulness on the Frontline” sermon series from LICC. It is a familiar story, one of those earliest stories that we learn in Sunday School or in school assemblies when we are first exposed to what “neighbourliness” in the …

Busy Mushy


It has been a busy time on the Mushy Cloud recently, and I'm really glad to say that my spell of "what am I doing next?" has come to an end. If you remember a few weeks ago I was struggling a bit because I'd finished my academic studies, I had no deadlines, and I …

Bearing With Grief


I've been on a training weekend this weekend with my theological college (All Saints Centre for Mission and Ministry) and the focus has been Funeral Ministry. We have looked at different aspects of death and dying, and we have talked about the legal stuff, the theological stuff and the ministerial stuff. As you can imagine, …

Julian of Norwich


Today is the feast day of Julian of Norwich. She was a 14th Century Christian anchoress and mystic who had visions of Jesus Christ as she was receiving the last rites, and who wrote of her revelations in a book called Revelations of Divine Love. Not much is known of her life, except that she …

My Ministry Day


I've had a lovely day today, spending most of my time on the phone talking with people. It has been one of the more frustrating things about having to concentrate on academic stuff so much, in that I've not had as much time as I would have liked to spend on "proper" ministry. And by …
