Ordination

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the ordination of two of my friends, Catherine Hughes and Monica Douglas-Clarke as OneSpirit Interfaith Ministers..The event was held at the Second Church of Christ Scientist, Notting Hill, in London.

In what I can only describe as a moving, and at times spectacular, ceremony 28 new ministers were given their licence to practice.

It was an honour to share the journey with Catherine as her supervisor for the two years of the course.

There was a part of me that felt like a proud parent because I know just how many personal challenges she had to overcome to arrive at this place.

Back with my writing family

It was lovely to be back with Writers Without Borders today having missed 2 meetings. Surprised and pleased that the Hippodrome has given us our very own sign so guests no longer have to guess where we are.

I shared a piece I wrote in 2010 ‘Caribbean Cowboy’, but have never read in public. I was extremely pleased with the way it was received. It is such an affirming group! Loved hearing everyone else’s pieces too. Felt like I was back with family.
