Something I pray:
Take me where
you want me to go,
Let me meet
who you want me to meet,
Tell me what
you want me to say,
And keep me out of your way.
(Revd Mychal Judge OFM

Is God waiting for the C of E? (Reviewing Maggi Dawn’s ‘Like the Wideness of the Sea’) #womenbishops
I read Maggi Dawn’s ‘Like the Wideness of the Sea – Women Bishops and the Church of England’ yesterday. That tells you for a start that it’s not a very big book – I’m not that fast a reader, especially … Continue reading
It may surprise some to know that this week I started ordination training by focusing on other important religions in the world today, and how Christians engage theologically with them. From a practical point of view this is partly because … Continue reading
Here is the DARE that I gave the people of All Saints, Minstead on Pentecost Sunday. More information about the service, the liturgy and the local pub are in my previous post here. You will note that I make reference … Continue reading
On Pentecost Sunday I had the privilege of leading and preaching at the church of All Saints, Minstead (at the invitation of the incumbent Revd Dr James Bruce). This was the church in which I was baptised, confirmed and married. … Continue reading

Here’s my sermon from last Sunday – Easter 2 (using both the John 20:19-23 reading and the Epistle reading Acts 5:27-32) It seems like what the Bible tells us is that if we don’t forgive, we can not expect to … Continue reading
Easter 2 and the lectionary Gospel is John 20:19 – 31 and the Epistle is Acts 5:27-32. For some reason I feel compelled to set Thomas aside, and favour of forgiveness – a theme which appears in both readings. We … Continue reading
Here’s another sermon, this time dated from 13th May 2007, back in the first year of my Reader Training. This one is an audio file, which usefully comes including the Bible reading that preceeded it: Acts 1:1-14 Ascension – waiting … Continue reading
