What a joy it is to welcome a new one into the family of God through baptism!
Then later in the day, what a privilege to celebrate the installation service of a new colleague. While I listened again to the promises she made in the service to preach, teach and administer the sacraments, I am reminded by whose strength I (and all of us) do these things. Only through and with God’s help can they be done, especially in times of weariness or feeling overwhelmed. I will, and I ask God to help and guide me!! That is important to remember and practice!! Every day!
