Asher and I were discussing spirituality and we came to a picture of a room with different walls.

The corner which holds each wall represents God one wall represents the dimension of ministry which focuses on those outside of the church and the other wall represents those within the church.

If a ministers focus is on those outside the church then surely they could be church army, evangelist, lay worker and if their focus is on those within the church then they could be sunday school workers, reader or LMN.

A vicar needs to be more focused on God and have an ability to encourage and equip congregations in their giftings and interests.

I realise this is a very simplistic outlook or way of putting things but this is the basic outline of our conversation and thought.

I have begun to use the end of day feeding time as my space for prayer. This time is quiet and everyone remembers that we really want baby to sleep so they are all mindful of staying out of my way! So this is a safe time for me to pray.

Thinking about my spirituality I have been realising that although my prayer life may not be perfect. Though I may not be settled in my routine or style of spirituality my whole life is focused toward and within and around God.

Even the question of why God and what is God are continually encompassed within my being.

This is why to work in anything other than the church drives me into areas where I do not seem able to function to the best for those around me or for myself. My skills are not utilized and I continually engage with how I might be able to bring the church into a place where these people might utilize and engage with it.
