It's not actually possible not to have a job in the Church and get paid, so even though I have resigned I am still officially and legally the Anglican Chaplain to the University of Southampton, but all that ends tomorrow.
Tonight I will pray for the students and staff of Southampton and commend them to God and then I will look back no more.
Tomorrow I get up, (I'll probably shower, shave and have breakfast) and then I will take a short two minute walk to meet an Archdeacon who will be surrogate for the Bishop.
Even though I'm a republican I will take an oath of allegiance to the Queen and her heirs AND SUCCESSORS, and then I will take an oath of allegiance to a Bishop in all things lawful and honest and that will bring my ministry at Southampton to an end. I will look forward then, mostly because at that point the Archdeacon will Licence me to my new job....
...and then the work begins.
