#414 On #day26 of placement I had another opportunity to deliver a #homily on our readings for the mid-week Eucharist with 15 minutes notice. It’s a skill that will be #invaluable in all areas of #ministry and yet it invokes more nerves than a full sermon usually does…why? For someone who always likes to plan and #beprepared, it feels a bit like I forgot something! Yet it is perhaps in that gap that I really give way to self and let God take over. I cannot deliver a homily in my own strength, but #withgodallthingsarepossible. Perhaps I should give way to self a little more!
#353 #onelastthing you can do for a loved one is to ensure their life is marked appropriately and that they are sent off with all the love and care possible. These orders of service reflect a good few hours of #thought, #preparation and #attentiontodetail and were a very small pleasure to do at such a sad time.
