Blasting the past

Strange but good to be back in Holy Trinity, Belfast, after nearly 30 years – my goodness, I am getting on a bit.  Surprisingly, there were lots of people whom I remembered.  Correction – there were lots of people and it surprised me how many of them I could remember.  Learning things?  How utterly dreadful that phase of the troubles was.  How amazingly brave was the ministry of my Rector, Jim Moore.  I hope he will write it up – if he doesn’t, I’ll start writing it up here!  How much of what one learns in ministry one is unaware of – until suddenly you recognise its value years later.  I think I learnt that good pastoral relationships were wonderful to live with – but are really there to be put under stress for the sake of the gospel.  True?
