Through regular mentoring and supervision, I find myself quite often asking the question: how does my ministry show up today? Perhaps ministry is not quite the right work. It feels more relevant to talk about 'conscious presence and service'. So where do I currently seek to offer 'conscious presence and service'? Here are a few pointers:

  • Through regular service to the Male Journey movement - serving as an elder at events such as the Men's Rites of Passage, an event leader, a designer of new programmes such as Return to Source, a mentor to other men on a one-to-one basis, and a trustee engaged in the governance of the movement.
  • As an aspiring volunteers within the Circles of Accountability movement working to support sex offenders within the community through their reintegration and self-management.
  • Providing spiritual direction and supervision to a range of students from the Interfaith Seminary, as well as to other men and women in search of deeper spiritual accompaniment. 
And throughout, I am sustained by a developing spiritual practice centred around silence and stillness, contemplation, journalling, retreat days in nature, and reflective study.
