Today, has been a day seemingly from a bygone era. A day spent catching up with people, spending quality time, responding to calls and to requests for input later in the session. All interspersed with unexpected phone calls bringing both good news and bad. And, as always, welcome, unplanned encounters. It would be great to have even one of these days in each week, days that seem to get back to the heart of ministry. Sharing Christ in community. Being out there where God already is, pitching in my lot. Days like that are the building blocks that underpin all the crazy times when I'm so busy trying to do that I forget that it is enough simply to be.
