For two days I have been painting my Aunts new bedsit in Eastbourne. It was a
great way for me to be still and spend some quality time with God
-My Mum has had the children, so I had no worries on that score, I had no radio, ipod or other noise distraction with me and nothing else to do except paint. It was a good time, I talked a lot of things over, just me and God - the uncertainty of my future, what needed to be done next, the beginings of the answers to the candidating questions. I don't think that for any of these things I am any nearer knowing the answers but I am definately happier, being real with God is good for the soul. taking time out from the everyday stuff we fill our lives with is a very refreshing process, so although I am tired from the painting I am somehow full of energy for what is to come.
As this blog was set up to share my journey through candidating, it's job is over. In September I start the next stage of my journey and my training.
I think however that I will continue to write here, to track how things go during my ministerial training.
Will you love the “you” you hide If I but call your name? Will you quell the fear inside And never be the same? Will you use the faith you’ve found To reshape the world around, Through my sight and touch and sound in you, and you in me?
