Journeys

I started watching Game of Thrones last week.
What an epic journey that is. Some will hate it and others obviously love it. I haven't quite made up my mind! But I think I'm being sucked in
Many of you will already know that I announced yesterday that I am to become the Parish Priest of St Mary Magdalene's, Adelaide in a couple of months (here)
That too will be an epic journey. Having been at Coromandel Valley for  over 18 years it was strange to say yesterday
" This will be the last Palm Sunday and Holy Week I will be here !" More than half of the Easters I have spent as a priest have been in this parish.
They are likely to be more exotic in the next few years!
So the journey of Holy Week, itself important in my life, will be compounded as I think (occasionally this week and then furiously next)  about the way I extract myself and two of my children from the house. AAgh!.
Will require a certain ruthlessness.  Makes G o Th look mild by comparison!
