I got a bit of a shock yesterday. My vicar sent me an email inviting me (and hubby, but he can't go) to attend Diocesan Synod this year. Synod is the governing council and discussion forum of the whole of our Diocese, and our vicar wants me there as an "under-35 representative" of our parish. Very cool, but very scary. I've always had a hankering to go to Synod as an observer just to see what happens, but I never thought in my wildest dreams I'd be invited to go as a parish representative!
This is the second time recently my vicar has invited me to something sort of special. It's quite exciting, but also a bit freaky. I've sensed God has been inviting me into something more - maybe this is it! I've also been asked to be part of helping get a contemplative service running again at St James, which is something I'm very passionate about. We'll see what happens from here, I guess.
