We are moving home, church, kids’ school and town today. I’ve been curate of St Luke’s for 3 years and 8 months. It has been a good season. The cross has regained centre ground in my life and I’ve come to appreciate the present benefits of faith union with Christ. We got embedded in the life of Blakenhall and made many good friends.

I’m not sure what the future holds for us at Holy Trinity West Bromwich. The church family is very welcoming and so we look forward to our move. My guess is that there will be all sorts of distractions in leadership which did not exist in the curacy. I’m also guessing that the demands of the post will be more exhausting. Please pray that I’ll always echo Paul in saying “what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.” (2 Corinthians 4:5)

      Thank you for your encouragement and prayers, Steve. I’ve not been around for a few days, I’m still unpacking boxes and only found my computer this morning! I hope to keep posting things I find helpful to me and hope others find them helpful too.
