Well, it seems unreal but this Sunday (3rd january) is Gaye, I and Monty the dogs last SUnday at St Jude’s. What a great time it has been. There have been some wonderful moments and I have enjoyed the company of all I have worked and worshipped with. Our Rector Greg has been a great mentor and support, especially through the difficult process towards ordination, as has Amanda and Jim. It has all been appreciated.
It seems just as unreal to be moving out on a journey as a priest in my own ministry. I, and many others, thought it would never happen, but it has. The journey to this place over the last 10 years has been amazing, surprising, challenging and stretching.
To all at St Jude’s thank you so very much for the last 4 years and I look forward to staying in touch in the future.
Maybe, one day, I will return just as Jesus did from his sojourn in Egypt. Who knows the mind of God?
