Old pic, from a service where I
used chocolate bars to tell the
Christmas story.
It's later than usual, and a very quick check-in today, because my head's feeling really strange.

I started out this morning with a new and strange experience a visual disturbance of flashing lights. Not fun, and when I posted it on the Sometimes, it is Lupus Facebook page I was given responses that it could be anything from my dry eyes to a migraine, but whatever see my doctor. (So it's on the list for this week's visit to the doctor.)

This morning was officially my last day as minister at Ashgrove West.  For me, that's really sad, and for the congregation it's sad as well. I'm still going there as a member of the congregation, but of all the places I've been in ministry, this is the one I've loved the most - and I only had 20 months there.

I didn't lead the service today, our wonderful Youth Worker Bec did, but I did get some time to speak - to thank the congregation for my time as their minister.

So one door is closing. What opens next, only God knows.

Anyway, I've spent most of the day asleep, and my head is feeling very strange, so it's back to bed again.
