I was brought to Glastonbury [UK] for a reason. Well, several reasons! To get the call to ministry. To raise a family [done, they're off being adults in the world]. To get ordained [done]. To open to Spirit more and more fully. To work in an ecumenical Celtic Christian community and live the old monastic rhythm of work, prayer and study. To travel the world and discover ‘home’ in New Zealand.
To be called again two months ago with words of fire, ‘I want this more than anything else!’. What is the ‘this’? Could be to train as a Lay Reader in the Church of England. Might even be to get one of those uncomfortable-looking backwards collars and be a Vicar. Might be something else. In the middle of this, being a remote member of the Community of Aiden and Hilda based on Lindisfarne, I discover that there’s a St Aiden church in Malibu. Maybe God is starting to point a finger further Westwards. That’s the unknown!
