has it really been that long?

Quite often we start off with good intentions, but then we put things off...

for ages I've been thinking, "I should post another blog", then I get distracted...

today, I finally take a look at my blog and am shocked at how long it's been since my last post, especially because since then I have another granddaughter and grandson!

'Busy-ness' is often my excuse for putting things off; but maybe it's really that my priorities are not what they should be?

In the time since I last posted a blog, lots of things have developed for us in Dover with the formation of the new Dover Group Ministry and the arrival of Revd Dr John Walker (as Team Rector) in March 2015; then Revd Josias de Souza Jr (as Mission Priest) in March this year.

Josias and I work closely together in Buckland, partly because of my parish role and partly because of my Cross-Links role.

He and his family answered God's call to leave their home in Brazil to come to Dover.  They embody what it truly is to be sent by God!

Josias is passionate for people to find out about Jesus and for them to turn to him.

At Cross-Links we want to share the love of Jesus and mostly do this by 'being there' for people especially when they most need help.

Sharing the GOOD NEWS OF JESUS is not something we should put off.  It should be part of our DNA as Christians.  As Josias often reminds us - we can do it because Jesus is with us.
