I can do, you can do, we can do!

Good morning friends and welcome to Pivot. This edition is all about Teamwork and I wanted to share a few of my thoughts on this subject. You see for most of my working life I have been blessed to work as part of a team. When I started work in 1972 as a member of the Civil Service for the Lord Chancellor’s Department, as a young clerical officer I was very conscious that being part of a team was a real supportive help at the start of my career.      See full story...

Love Your Neighbour

At the end of January, my husband Colin and I went on holiday for a fortnight. We went to the far North West of Scotland and I like to describe it as our ‘character building’ holiday. My husband may describe it in other terms – but whatever words we use – it was a stunningly beautiful and exciting holiday in one of the remotest places of the United Kingdom.      See full story...

The Gift That Keeps on Giving

Dear Friends and Neighbours, In my last letter, I wrote about my experience of attending a Silent Retreat at the start of my Sabbatical which took place in the first quarter of 2017. I thought I might share with you a little more about my time away.      See full story...

What a gift!

Having been in ministry for ten years, the Methodist Church generously gift their ministers with a three-month long Sabbatical. This is meant to be a time of spiritual, physical and mental renewal. My Sabbatical took place during January, February and March of this year and so I returned to ministry at the beginning of April, in time for Easter.      See full story...

Are we nearly there yet?

Go on, drop the magazine if you have never heard those words or thought them yourself! On some car journeys, when I heard those words coming from the back seats, it usually prompted swift action to try and quieten things down before things got too distracting. I guess that I didn't like being reminded, again and again, that we're not there already either. So often we push on to the destination, and once we've set out we simply want to get there as soon as possible. Maybe it’s a more common experience than we care to admit. So often we focus so intensely on the getting there bit that we fail to make the most of the journey itself.      See full story...
