Pause for Thought
Today from Canon Ann Easter, Chief Executive of a Charity and Chaplain to the Queen:
"I think I was about six when I was in Church with my grandma and I felt a call. Not a voice as such, but a sense that, one day, I would be telling people about God’s love for them.
My grandma was a recreational church-goer, always looking for the nicest women’s fellowship or a good outing rather than the most holy liturgy, and my family was certainly Christian but never before professionally; so it was with some trepidation that, exactly 30 years ago today, I was made a Deaconess in the Church of England.
I’d been studying for five and a half years but, like most of these things, I was just about to begin the real learning.
I’ve worked as a deaconess, deacon and priest, part-time and full-time and now as an honorary curate inbetween my day job. I’ve conducted thousands of funerals, baptised loads of babies and adults and done a few weddings. And I must have preached a million sermons!
I’ve been Chaplain to a maternity hospital – so lovely with all those little babies – and now I’m Chaplain to Her Majesty the Queen. And for about 27 of those years, I’ve worked with the BBC on TV and radio, reaching more people than Jesus ever met in his lifetime.
I feel so lucky that I was able to answer God’s call to the ministry; I have had the enormous privilege to be close to people in their greatest and their most painful moments and I hope and pray that I have been able to bring them some of God’s love, comfort and encouragement.
There’s something about being in the right job in the right place; people flourish and grow best, not when life is easy, but when they feel they are of use and making a difference, however small.
And, as they say, if you think you’re too small to make a difference – then you’ve clearly never been in bed with a mosquito!!"
