TODAY IS MY INSTAVERSARY

A year ago today I made a commitment to post about my ministry every day... my everyday ministry...


Often when I tell people I'm an interfaith minister they assume that means my work is celebrancy and ask me about weddings... but its so much wider than that... and so much more than paid work too...


I remember a friend talking about her 'work' encompassing all the things she brings to the world... all the way she uses her gifts... and I guess that's what my posts have been about...


And they've been almost every day apart from when I took an instaholiday or when I forgot to post!


As I look back through my feed I see my ministry has been... my mumming... my time in and conversing with nature... my giving and receiving... my resting, self care and me-ministry... my dancing... and swimming with the seals... and growing veggies... my work with trauma and abuse... exploring and feeling ALL the emotions... my teaching meditation... my pilgrimages to the stones and the wells... to the mountains and the sea... to the flowers, trees and whales... my spiritual counselling and death cafes and regular meditation groups... my creating... creations of poetry, prose and presents oh and ceremony, cakes, circles and craftivism and mandalas, altars and blessing branches... my dreaming... my healing... my partnering...my feeling gratitude... my holding... my following where I'm guided... my loving...


It's been a beautiful practice to reflect each day on what my ministry has been...on what I've brought... and as I reflect now, what the themes are... what my gifts are!


It's been a revelation how reciprocal ministry is... how each time I give I'm often also receiving in some way... like for the bee and the flower...


"For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life, And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love, And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy." ~Gibran


Do you have other questions I can answer besides 'what form does your ministry take in the world'?
