I am a priest in the Anglican diocese of Melbourne.
Paidiske is the Koiné Greek* word for a female slave or servant. Service is, for me, a touchstone of spirituality and the attitude which I hope will characterise my writing here. Of course it will be about topics which interest me, mostly reflections on matters of faith, but I hope useful and interesting to others as well.
Above all, I’d value conversation and exchange of ideas, so please do comment, criticise, and engage with me in my ramblings!
*The language of the New Testament and the early church.
What I believe:
I am an orthodox Anglican, which means I accept the Apostles’ and Nicene creeds as the rule of faith for understanding the truth of Scripture. I assent to the 39 Articles of Religion. Obviously, as an ordained woman, I accept the public ministry of women in the Church.
