Tea and Theology


February 2016

#215 It is incredibly humbling how complete strangers can provide such unconditional care and reassurance, and all you can do is surrender to their expertise and pray for them and our loved ones #NHSangels #juniordoctors #24/7 (at Royal Derby Hospital)

#214 The #wheelbarrow … Such a random item! At first sight it looks like it will be of no use, then you realise that it can actually carry quite a bit and is very useful! How often do we judge something on looks alone? How often do we discount something on our own preconceived ideas? (at Cuddesdon)

#213 #patternsinnature Vibrancy and variety of colours, types and shapes, all co-existing and allowing each other to flourish. #lessonswecanlearnfromnature (at Wheatley, Oxfordshire)

#212 I love looking up into the sky and seeing airplane tracks. It shows both the enormity and the accessibility of earth. I always wonder who is on the plane, where are they going, why? #journeys can be exciting and sad. There can be so much potential and possibility. It can all be new and unknown or completely familiar. Whatever the situation, it’s important to #embrace it for what it is, and #findpeace within it. (at Wheatley, Oxfordshire)

#211 There are a number of association with walls…like hitting your head against a brick wall! They can exclude, or stop entry. But they can also be protective, marking out your safe space, a warm and cosy place where you can be completely yourself, do what you want with who you want to. #embracethesafespace (at Cuddesdon)

#210 #findrefreshment #findrenewal. Grass needs water, sun, time and rest to grow… #whatdoyouneedtogrow (at St Mary & St Nicholas Church)

#209 Do you ever feel like the #lostsheep? Sometimes I feel completely lost, left behind or even alone. This can be a good place, it can be a place where I #seekgod more urgently, rely on Him more fully. I can be more aware of my own insufficiency, and God’s awesome sustainability. In these times I often lean on God more fully, and ask that my awareness of Him grow more deeply. #findthegoodineverything (at Wheatley, Oxfordshire)

#208 It struck me that this tea light holder showed what #godslight shining out of ourselves and our homes might look like. How can you #letgodslightshine today? (at Cuddesdon)

#207 Today is a first…I’ve never been sent #anonymousflowers before! Wondering who they might be from?! The card says, “The Lord, your God, is in your midst, a warrior who gives victory; he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will renew you in his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.” #zeph3v17 What a message of #encouragment #surprise #blessed #thankyou (at Cuddesdon)
