Monday morning update

A few regular questions to help me review the week back and reflect on the week forward. hat tip: MarkO

the weekend that was: The Taylor family hit the Aussie outback, walking in the Flinders Ranges and I am totally impressed. Lots of driving, lots of walking which the kids coped with really well. Their highlight was seeing kangaroos and emus in the wild. Mine was the tiny flowers that make up the outback. Amazing.

where i am at the moment: Parkin-Wesley, where the seminary has so kindly provided an office, library facilities, internet and printer. I wrote about 6,500 words last week on the missional church book, plus kicked off the first day (of five) of the missional church leadership course.

on my to-do list this week: I have the first of my missional church coaching groups. We have divided the groups in two. One will be a simple coffee and mission, church, leadership, change discussion. The other will be a more focused workshopping process, in which I will introduce a congregational discernment process.

procrastinating about: Missional Church Leadership marking. I have a few bits and pieces to tidy up.

book i’m in the midst of: Scott Turow’s Burden of Proof. A good escapist read.

music that seemed to catch my attention this past week: Black Seeds new album, Solid Ground. Not as good as Into the Dojo, but it is growing on me.

next trip: a quiet weekend is looming. It will be Fathers Day and the kids are looking forward to being able to make me Fathers Day breakfast on the day, rather than having to delay it cos of Sunday church stuff.

how i’m feeling about this week: Tired. It was a rich weekend, but 10 hours driving takes its toll.

  1. Remember that this is supposed to be a rest time, Steve. And you are older than you were five or even ten years ago!
