Our March Synod celebrated with Revd Paul Whittle - Reflections on 40 years. I have somewhat ambitiously entitled this 'Forty years (and what next) of ministry'.  I do not really have the space to tell you about the forty years, though I will try and offer a few samples, and I don't know what the 'what next' will be.  I do believe in strategies and planning.  We need a vision.  However, I have learned that God usually has a few twists and turns that we don't see coming hidden in there somewhere.  Maybe there won't be any more surprises, but somehow I doubt it.    But let me turn the clock back forty years.  It is a Friday in March 1979.  I have moved from Wigan, where I had spent a few months with my parents and siblings, post theological training, and am now in Beith, North Ayrshire, where I am to be ordained as a Minister of Word and Sacraments.     View: Paul's Reflection on 40 Years of Ministry
