I am Methodist Minister, but not currently able to work in active ministry because of chronic illness.

I originally set this blog up because I wanted to find some way of continuing to interact with the world – these are the sermons I would preach if I still could. Initially I commented each week on the lectionary readings – and anything else that grabs my need to say something! But my illness overtook me and thinking clearly and writing became too much. But I am trying to revive it – largely with material I had previously written, some reworked.

As far back as 1999, I wrote my dissertation on the theology of church and its use of the internet, “The World Wide Web is My Parish”. Not just how, but why churches should be using it. I have continued to maintain an interest in and passion for how we use the opportunities that the internet and social media present to us.

Of course anything I say here is my own opinion, and not endorsed by or reflective of anyone else.

  1. Dear Pam,
    How refreshing to read your perambulations on the lectionary readings which give most interesting and helpful thoughts and reflections to ponder over. The photo of the flower adorned cross at Bridge Street on Easter Sunday morning captures an appropriate resurrection picture to illustrate the promise of new life in our risen Lord and Saviour.
    Your further editions will be very much appreciated.
    May God bless your continuing Ministry in this form of witness in His service.
    Sincerely, Jean & John

  2. Thanks for the encouragement! It seems one very small way I can continue to have a ministry of sharing God’s word and reflecting on it for us today


  3. God bless your desires Pam.

  4. My sister came upon your blog and I wanted to share something with you. My mom is Pam Rice and a friend of hers published a book called “Perambulations” and it is available on cafepress. She was a LEM and started taking classes to be a Deacon in the Episcopal Church before she died in January, 2007. I have enjoyed looking through your blog, you remind me of my mom. Thank you.

  5. Thanks for that!
