Earlier in January I had the privilege to attend the licensing of the Revd Paul Clarke as the Rector of the Walton and Trimley benefice. It was a joyous occasion to see Paul being formally licensed in the role and to pray for him and the benefice as they begin their ministry together. It was also an occasion where I was able to meet with colleagues and it was special meet up with the vicar who helped train both Paul and me when we were in curacy. It was good to share stories about the past and discuss hopes for the future.

Looking at Chris' message from Sunday 3rd November...

What does to minister love and grace mean – I guess it could be seen a snappy soundbite that goes with the other Ms in the series

Yet each one of us is called to minister – in the places we find ourselves throughout the week as scattered church. Often we think that we minister in church – it’s a rather churchy word – he’s gone into the ministry – it makes it feel a bit like it’s something ordained folk do– but I would propose that each of us as part of our Christian discipleship is called to minister.
