We were delighted to be joined by Revd David Newsome who is the Diocesan Director of Ordinands in the Dicoese of Lichfield. For a greater understanding of what this job entails have a look at this link on the Diocese’s website. This website is specifically designed for those who are younger and exploring whether God might be calling them to ordained Anglican ministry.
David talked to us about how we explore God’s call to us to serve Him and what that might look like for different people. We thought about our calling in the context of our response to God’s love and goodness to us. We thought about whether we really do own our own lives or whether our lives belong to God in any event. Between each section of the talk there was time to reflect in silence while listening to music.
We were grateful for the time and space that he created for us as we thought about God’s plans and purposes for our own lives whatever stage of life we are at.
We also celebrated Nicola’s and Helen’s birthdays and Michael made a chocolate fudge cake to mark the ocassion!
