Quirky Song

Love the use of Yurt and flugelhorn in the lyric - that must be rare...

U2 Grace

Woah!- dusty in here....
Thought I'd post my latest video - preaching on grace so spent most of my prep time making a video (as you do)..

Joining with the spirit

I was reading this post from Johnny Baker in bed last night on my iPod (my wife forbade be to eat in bed, but has as yet not forbidden nocturnal surfing...)

The book looks really interesting - but at 25 quid I'm thinking I'd bewtter not add it to my (tetering) reading pile - hopefully one of my friends has a copy.

the title joining in with the spirit comes from the notion that mission is finding out where God is at work and joining in which is certainly something john v taylor said, perhaps along with a bundle of other people. discernment then is the first act of mission.

I like that quote - I've often used the quote in helping people consider church when they move home - but as a first act of mission that is challenging.

Particularly as I'm in PR for WEC....

Partnership and Mission

I was reading Krish Kandiah's excellent blog on mission partnership. He makes some excellent points in it - well worth a read.

Very tempting it in a way so as to tick off the points in the manner of "we would never do that" - and that is certainly often arguable. Sadly these mistakes do get made.

Challenging - but I want to believe we can do better - even in a big global agency. Particularly if we can pull of the challenge after nearly 100 years, of getting back to our roots and be less an organisation, more a Spirit-led movement - and that is our aim...
