Abbeyskate, Malmesbury

About 600 children and young people took to the ramps in Malmesbury Abbey Skate 2017 during the last February half-term. It was an awesome community effort and a massive thanks goes to all those who helped to make MAS2017 such a huge success! From the small army of people who prepared meals to feed all the volunteers, to the smiling faces on the welcome team, to the impeccably efficient booking desk, to the behind the scene sound crew, to the generous sponsors, to our B&B volunteers, to our straw bale carriers and wood-layers, to our first aiders, to our cafe connoisseurs, to our prayer team, to our tuck-shop assistants, to Phil and Christian Skaters UK, and SO much much more… Thank you!

Beginnings...

A journey begins with one step and (with some trepidation) I start my sabbatical.
The hope?
To rest, have time out to reflect on calling,  ministry and what it might look like in the future - personally and within the context of Ruthin....
So, a prayer:
Loving God, in my journeying and my resting, in my listening and or reflecting please guide me and lead me afresh to the light of your truth, Jesus.
For I ask in His name...
AMEN.

Walthamstow - seen in passing....

How about this for a "mobile library"?
Households volunteer to host a "book house" which is stocked with books. People passing can borrow / add / replace a book and so the mini library continues....
What a wonderfully simple public service...!

Sabbatical in summary...

My presence will go with you and I will give you rest.’ 
Oh God, can those words be for me too?
How I long to hear them!
I’m not Moses, but I’m also on a journey – trying to follow Jesus.Some days, life seems like an unmarked wilderness,
and I’m not sure which way to go.
‘My presence will go with you and I will give you rest.’
Yes, I hear you Lord. Help me to trust.Other days, I’m so busy that I don’t stop to listen.
I’m stressed and distracted and frazzled.
‘My presence will go with you and I will give you rest.’
Yes, I hear you Lord. Help me to pause and take time for you.Then there are the days when I do remember.
I walk restfully in your presence.
How different those days are.‘My presence will go with you and I will give you rest.’
Yes, I believe you Lord. Those words are for me. 
Your presence does go with me and give me rest.
Thank you Lord!Amen
