Birdsong and growing in radiance

Following on from my Masters degree where I focused on using photography as a tool to explore matters of faith and belief, I embarked on a DTh in Practical Theology in September last year.

Ordination

#700 Today marked my #ordinationceremony as #deacon. It was so beautiful to share this day with so many people who have walked with me and helped to shape me into who I am.
