In recent weeks we have been in the midst of various storms, bringing strong winds and a large amount of rain. As I look around the garden, I am surprised at what has fallen victim to the wind and what has survived. Often, a somewhat weak looking item has survived, where what appears to be a more substantial structure may have succumb to the storms.

Earlier in January I had the privilege to attend the licensing of the Revd Paul Clarke as the Rector of the Walton and Trimley benefice. It was a joyous occasion to see Paul being formally licensed in the role and to pray for him and the benefice as they begin their ministry together. It was also an occasion where I was able to meet with colleagues and it was special meet up with the vicar who helped train both Paul and me when we were in curacy. It was good to share stories about the past and discuss hopes for the future.
