Many things in my head

I am just back from Sharpening the Edge
a 3 day “conference” that incorported story telling of, and reflection on, what God is up to in our communities around Aotearoa New Zealand.

I met some very good people and was delighted with the passion and enthusiasm i saw and heard.

i am very aware that while there is value in that as an isolated event, there is huge scope for so much more if we make and take the time to think carefully about ways forward in terms of learning, ongoing interactions and future events.

But

i return home to neglected things i simply MUST do for work
(my blog was not the only thing abandoned in my july school holiday and rush to prepare for STE mix)…
so,
i want to balance catching up on the abandoned
and thoroughly “closing” the conference: my notes made sense of, time for reflection taken.
AND i also want to be doing the necessary thinking and stirring and encouraging to ensure the value of this is more fully realised with all the ongoing learnings and engagement that could occur.

Sigh.

For now though, i must write my “legion of donors” letter (to some of our older baptist saints) seeking prayer and finanical support for some of those engaged in ministry and mission (in some of our younger Baptist churches).
