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

Lent was this year, a dark time. There was a lot of wrestling for me to do, and a lot of just getting through all sorts of anxieties and pain – mental and physical. My husband and I gave up on our … Continue reading
Graham will post later I’m sure, but it’s me making a start on our Lent reflections today. Today was always going to be a day set aside for reflection; I am on one of my regular days at Alton Abbey, … Continue reading
I don’t know about you, but at times it seems that we’re always being expected to chase things up. It’s like we’re living in a culture of “if you don’t ask, you won’t get”. In church life, experience tells me, … Continue reading
