This is the End (or A Brand New Day)

So, it’s time to move on. As Mrs Nomad and I packed up our last couple of boxes ready for the arrival of the removals van first thing tomorrow the Olympics closing ceremony was on the tv. The Olympics have accompanied us as we’ve packed up our life ready to move on from Cambridge after two years and pitch up for the next step of our life in Cornwall. After I’ve typed and posted this I’ll close down the laptop, turn off the wi-fi and pack it all up. It has been an amazing two years, filled with challenging lows and inspiring highs. I’ve made friends who I’m sure will be with us on our journey for the rest of our lives. I’ve learnt so much, changed and grown so much. We all have. And now we move on, because that’s what I came here to do – to develop, learn, grow, change, in order to move on into a new phase of life, a new role in a new location.

Today, tonight, is the end, but it is also the beginning. Tomorrow we load up and head out. We will have left, but our time here will remain with us.

This blog will, I hope, continue. I’m hoping I can get back to more regular posts, and find ways I can use this blog to help with my ministry, even if it’s just a place when I can think out loud and seek input from others.

For now, though, it’s goodbye – see you on the other side (of the Tamar!)

Whether moving on or staying put – travel well,

The Nomad
