  • This time last year

    One year ago, last Thursday, I was ordained and inducted into my first charge. One year ago today (Sunday), I had taken (actually, shared) my first service in that new charge. I had also done a funeral visit, and was preparing to take it in just a few days time. I’d sat in the car […]

  • Settling in

    Well, that’s just over two weeks in ‘the job’. Three Sundays, albeit one where I was preached in, two funerals, initial contacts with one of the primary schools, time with local colleagues, and lots of unpacking and manse-readying.

  • New Year, New Start

    I’m not given to writing retrospectives, so this isn’t a look back on last year (which was, to be fair, eventful enough).
