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

I was back in Old Basing celebrating Eucharist and preaching this Sunday, before being back on the road again next week. The Epistle and Gospel spoke about money, at times using some quite militaristic language I thought, but also about … Continue reading

Earlier today I posted about my worries that perhaps I was putting my family before my calling. Thank you everyone for helping me to work through something that’s been bothering me for some while. A good slap with a sensible … Continue reading
