Fellowship

It was a busy night at the church. Started off with Taize worship that we do once a month. This month I decided to try using powerpoint in the service so that we could look at icons and have the music with the words of the chants on a slide - very high tech for us! It seemed to work.
Then it was over to the hall for a silent auction. What fun. I've never managed along to one of those. And it was good to get to see members in a different setting. I had to leave before the end for our late night youth service but left my son bidding. It cost me a fortune - but all in a good cause. I feel really tired but its a happy kind of tiredness caused by a good buzz. I love those times just hanging out with folk. Isn't that at the heart of ministry for everyone?

No wonder you have to go on retreat - doing so many things on the one night!

But those are the kind of nights I thrive on.

I hear you, Liz. I thrive on stuff like that, too! Pretty picture, wonderful recounting of your experience. Thanks!

As a chaplain, I couldn't agree more about ministry being hanging out with people. Too many churches and their leaders get hung up on programmes rather than time together.

Maybe it stems from my chaplaincy days when I used to loiter with intent!
