Welcome to the Religion Chat thread. We're mostly Christians, but all are welcome. a lovely soace to talk about church life, spiritual journeys and stuff in general. It's not about debate, it's about chat. Come oldies and newbies!
rushing off to Ely for appt with the bishop ... this is just a thought, Uniquel, well two thoughts -- one is that I never went to activities alone that I'd previously gone to with my children, so perhaps the mums who came in think that it's not for them -- could you put on something that is specifically for adults in the shop -- a book group, perhaps? Time away from the children. My third thought is perhaps you should do something that is for you (not just the church choir) that is not the shop, and not dd. Join a secular choir maybe?
Hugs to you -- don't forget you really are unique and amazing
Nickel how about doing a 'nip into the shop on your way back from the school run' coffee and have a look in the shop thing. Or is that too early for you? Or a 'come and have a look in before you go home from school'?
All went well with the bishop. I've had a letter with the date of the BAP -- in November. (Also had a rather horrible letter from work, which I was expecting, but not great timing.) So I ought to feel good, he's confirmed he will be sponsoring me, and was reassuring and positive (though we didn't talk about the date -- he talked the whole time as if it was just round the corner), I just feel exhausted and weepy.
No, it was Vicious David. Vicious Stephen has been very ill -- he had a ruptured appendix -- and although he's back at work he's got to take things easy. So I didn't get to see him, which is a shame because he's absolutely lovely (not that the other one isn't nice too).
at the end of the service on sunday, NV said the closing doxology, and we all said Amen, and she looked very stern, and went "aaaahmm" then he did the dismissal and we said amen and she looked stern again and went "aaaahmm"
Hello - I'm stuffing learning outcomes into reflections which is what ongoing training in the C of E is all about. It is very dull and I may be forced to do the ironing for a bit of light relief. I'd much rather be doing ministry than evidencing that I can do it
To make things worse I'm thinking about doing further study, a Masters this time, but all this mucking around with fiddling cross referencing reminds me how fiddley I find academic referencing so maybe just sticking with what I have is ok.
Hello all! I'm recovering from falling downstairs onto my face as I was about to leave work on Wednesday -- I've got very bruised legs, and an extremely scary hitler-moustache style scab where a huge tear on my lip was stitched. I haven't been good for very much in the last couple of days, so I've been getting on with the baby blanket for my sister's partner's baby. It's due in only a month now and the blanket is still only half done, eek! Still at least I have had an excuse to sit and do little else but knit for a couple of days. (Should have been doing my BAP form but couldn't face it in the aftermath of fall, A&E, having to spend night away from home, etc)
