Communion'ed out!

I was taking a service last week and was told that I have 2 voices when I preaching - a conversational one which is lovely to listen to (Apparently) and then a different voice when I'm reading liturgy (I hesitate to say liturgical voice!) which he says is monotonous and goes flat.

I'm not complaining about his comments, for he did it in a lovely contrustive way, but it has made me think. I think part of it comes from taking so many communion services - having taken 6 communion services in 7 days ... I feel a bit communioned out.... it's a hazard of the job, I guess - but a problem if other people notice it!

I am grateful for a couple of weeks now, where I have no communion service to take, to rest, reflect and pray that my creativeness and love for communion returns - maybe then the voice will be a bit enthusastic!!!

A small selection of many photpgraphs of Archways I have taken over the last couple of years - I don't know what it is about them that I find inspiring but I do. It's not any particular arch either - they can be natural or handmade, of trees, stone or even buildings.

Whatever it is that attacts me to them, one thing I do know is that they get me thinking about God - and my relationship with him. I hope that writing it down will help me to work out the rest!!!

trying it out!

Well I've finally given in and so will attempt to write a blog. I'm really not sure how's it gonna turn out or what I will write - but surely that's the fun of it!!!

What I do know is that I've been encouraged a lot to blog / journal .. and so here goes.............
