The readings for the day provided a chance to reflect on the challenges of ministry in a secularised Europe, and to be encouraged for that ministry. God calls us through his Son to be leaven and salt, gentle agents giving life and flavour around us. As ministers, whether bishop, priest, deacon or reader, we committed ourselves, following our Lord, to reach out to strengthen the weak, to heal the broken-hearted, to lift up the fallen and to invite all to the loving arms of God.
