Missed Opportunity

Today I was supposed to be attending a Ministry Development Day, entitled "Edges & Endings", which I was really looking forward to. It related to pastoral situations, real ones, where our judgement is often tested and having the experience to know how to handle more difficult encounters.

Physically, this morning, I could hardly make myself coffee, never mind making it to Glasgow and providing any sort of positive input. I feel somewhat "robbed" of a day that I would have got a lot from, apart from the clergy togetherness which I just soak up on these occasions.

Maybe it will be repeated at some point, or maybe I'll just go to the doctor for antibiotics that little bit quicker next time I'm bitten!

We missed you Kenny, but hope you are well on the way to recovery. Don't worry - the new CMD calendar will be out later this week and there will be lots of opportunities over the next six months for you to enjoy clergy togetherness and to contribute, as you always do, to others' enjoyment.

I'm sure that antibiotics are an excellent early response to being bitten, Kenny - all commiserations that it happened - here's hoping you get well faster than the fastest of fast things ! x
