March 2021 – Hannah Moore
Hannah spoke about walking on Jelly and Firm Foundations. You can walk on jelly, but you need to keep moving.
She shared her past year as an example of what she was talking about.
Hannah took her position as vicar of a new parish at a time when all churches were closed due to the pandemic. The experience was varied:
*They were in crisis management mode.
*It was energy draining.
Through all this they have changed as church. She also was reminded that Christ is present whenever and wherever we gather.
Hannah found the past year very challenging and wondered what she had achieved. Reflecting she thought of Ruth.
“God has placed me here for a time such as this”. This changed the focus from herself to God.
When times are tough we can forget to lift up our eyes to God.
At this time, the church should be praying.
