Bishop John was on fine form today and was careful to make this a positive an encouraging occasion - and not too long...
He started his sermon with the observation that many people, lay and ordained, find their ministry draining at times, and then asked four questions:
- What do you get up for in the morning? What are you passionate about?
- What is the biggest question that you're asking at the moment? What is you vision?
- What support do you need? Resources?
- Will you wash my feet? - a bit of a different kind of question - motivation?
