An experience which enriches and uplifts
Sometimes the glass is clean and you can see God clearly. His light beckons and you easily slide open the window and talk.
At other times the glass is misted or dirty. It's not clear what if anything is on the other side or alternatively the window is so obscured that you don't even notice it or the light on the other side.
At times like this you may need a bit of help to see what is waiting for you, beckoning to you through the window.
Open that window and make today awesome!
Meeting with God is like opening a window

Hi, I'm Nicki!
Through this website I will try to share my views and experiences of Meeting with God Everyday.
I am a wife, sister, friend and in the past I have been a nurse in the NHS, an Acupuncturist and since 2014 I've been an ordained minister in the Church of England. At the moment I am the vicar of four rural parishes in South Warwickshire.
I cannot remember a time when Christ wasn't in my life. I grew up in an era when daily christian assemblies in school were the norm and I enjoyed listening to and learning the stories from the bible. Where else can you read about love and hate, peace and war, laughter and joy, song and sorrow, intrigue and mystique, promise and hope - so many genres in one book?
Through my life I've experienced a variety of theological traditions and christian denominations. A tutor at theological collage once described my churchmanship as 'Village'. When asked to explain what she meant she said that I am "comfortable attending and leading worship services covering a wide spectrum from Anglo-catholic to Charismatic; from the formal to the informal and cafe style, in church and in the wider community. And that' she said 'is what's required of a village or rural vicar.' Having ministered in a rural parish for over 4 years I think that's a good description of me and rural ministry.
My faith continues to move, shift and grow as I travel the journey of life. I recognise a need in myself to feed my spirituality, widen my faith experiences so that I don't stand still but continue to grow and develop. I believe that keeping my own faith journey alive will not only enrich my life and my faith but also my ability to lead others in faith.
During my life I've attended church and not attended church, lost God and turned away from him and he's found me.
...my thoughts on
Meeting with God Everyday
We expect to find God in Church and in our private prayer but have you ever wondered where he is the rest of the time? If we open our eyes we can se him. If we open our ears, we can hear him. If we open our hearts, we can know him. 'He is not far from any one of us, for in him we live and move and have our being.'* The fact is we don't really need to find God. Nor does he need to find us. He knows right where we are. If we are honest, we know right where he is, too. We can Meet God in the Everyday things in our lives.
I find God in places of worship, on a mountainside, in the faces and actions of other people and even when I'm doing the washing up!
