My surgery this morning wasn’t as busy as it usually is. My Saturday surgery (I do three Wednesday's and one Saturday a month) usually has 8 to 10 people but only three today but as is always the case, their issues are complex and unique to them.
Its is one of the privilege of election insight you are given into the lives of others and the chance to walk with folk awhile as they face challenges in their lives that often are not of their own making. In that respect it has many similarities to parish ministry but it is also a salutary reminder of whats really important in politics and it has little to do with power, parties or even policies and everything to do with peoples lives.
