mission 2

with one comment

Mark and Eva have gone to Belfast. Eva is being fitted for her bridesmaid dress (flower girl dress really but for Eva’s sake we tell her she is going to be a Bridesmaid) . I am not in Belfast – I am off on the college mission to Hardwicke tomorrow so wasn’t able to go!

I have posted on this mission already and it raised a few questions – both on the blog and in the pub! I have to say I am quite nervous about going into a rural parish and speaking not only about my faith but also about the Church of England and my calling to ministry. But I guess that is what I am being trained for. I am also going to miss Mark and Eva – I hadn’t really factored the missing them in to all of this. It has just hit me that it is holy week and I won’t be here. Again, I guess this is something I am going to have to get used to.

Anyway, this is a brief outline of what we are going to be doing:

Palm Sunday – Parish Eucharist with Palm Procession at Hardwicke (Common Worship) 11.00am

  1. I’m not sure that wishing you luck is theologically appropriate, but I’m going to do it anyway. Will try to pray too. Meanwhile I haven’t forgotten your proposal for further discussion on emerging missional forms, and am waiting with bated breath…
