I’ve been typing up random ponderings since starting ministry training at Edgehill Theological College way back in 2005. That was pre-facebook, pre-twitter, pre-pretty much everything social media. A blog was the only way to self-publish online apart from coding up your own website in HTML and CSS. Posts were much more frequent while I was … Read moreBlog Re-birthed
Well, there’s a title to get the twitter bots to follow me! As anyone who has ever played or sung with me in a band will tell you, I can’t remember lyrics. I wouldn’t stand a chance on the X-Factor/American Idol/The Voice. It doesn’t matter whether it’s the fifth or the five hundredth time, or … Read moreThe Story of My Life through The Best Songs Ever
I’ve been feeling the nudge to get back into blogging. Which I’m sure all of you avid MinisterMoo readers are very excited about. So, watch this space. I’m going to play with the layout and stuff and then might consider posting something. Soon. Perhaps.
Thirteen years ago I felt a call to be a Methodist minister (if you discount the many times before that when my grannies told me it was going to happen). Yesterday it actually happened!

The purchase of our dishwasher was one of the best decisions we ever made for our sanity, work-life balance, back aches and general peace in the house. But it is indeed a huge user of electricity: combined … Read moreDishwasher Day
Good evening and welcome to Pancake Tuesday! Or Shrove Tuesday. Or, if you’re in America, Super-Duper Tuesday. Mardi Gras is the day before Ash Wednesday, when the Church enters a period of self-discipline called Lent. A time for prayer and fasting, for solemn reflection on the state of our community and soul. This year, in … Read morePancakes

I’ve always loved cycling, it’s one of those pleasures of life for me. So I’m a little envious of Jools, who’s doing an amazing maracycle at the moment, down the east coast of USA. It’s taken a huge amount of training and perseverence for him, we’re proud of him! You can see what he’s up … Read moreSpinning Wheels
