Autumnal

Stunning temperature inversion on the edge of the benefice this fine morning. #morningprayer #newrevs #thoughtsfromswallowbarn

Damp

Wonderful to get out this afternoon up onto Thornton Moor via Old Sawood Lane. #newrevs #thoughtsfromswallowbarn

And, breathe…

Just about to start 3 days of retreat at the beautiful Parcevall Hall. No phone, no internet, no distractions. Time for some space with God in the wonderful Yorkshire Dales as I celebrate surviving the first 3 months of my Curacy! #retreat #newrevs #thoughtsfromswallowbarn

Curate’s office

Wonderful to finally get my parish office sorted. Loving my fairly traded furniture and rug from Namaste. Do come and find me in the Curate’s office at St James’ if you’re passing through Cross Roads. #propercoffee #fairtrade #newrevs #thoughtsfromswallowbarn

Wow!

Wonderful to live in the South Pennines on an evening like this. #eveningprayer #newrevs #thoughtsfromswallowbarn

Nice view out of big daughter’s new window as she starts her second year at uni. #architecture #newrevs #thoughtsfromswallowbarn

Vinyl

Enjoying big daughter’s birthday present by rediscovering some old vinyls.”There’s a stillness here, thankful found.” #10000maniacs #newrevs #thoughtsfromswallowbarn

Ponden Mill

Not too early a start on our St James’ Friday Club camping trip. It’s good the wind has dropped and the sun is on the way to clear the midges away! Time for breakfast? #lovecamping #newrevs #thoughtsfromswallowbarn

Ruswarp

And a little canoeing today on the River Esk at Ruswarp. Excellent tea shop too! 😎☀️🛶 #newrevs #thoughtsfromswallowbarn
