Andrew Doarks Posted on June 21, 2012 by samc Rev Andrew DOARKS, ordained a priest serving in the Benefice and Parish of St Luke, Brislington. St Luke’s congregation is confidently Ancient and Modern. It is remarkable that for such a stable community as Brislington I have been embraced as one of them so quickly. I have received as a gift all manner of traditional Anglican practices that were previously unknown to me. The different services and preaching plan have brought deep and fresh richness to the scriptures that I love. I have had to come to terms with being caught up in the drama as both director and actor, praying and worshipping whilst making notes on style, content, projection, etc. The support and encouragement offered to me has remained constant and frequent even when mistaking lecturn bookmarks for a stole! It is the variety of this role that ensures it remains a privilege and a joy. I pray that I retain a keen sense of unworthiness and willingness to serve God in the tasks to which He calls me.
