new year

Its the disappearing man again!
Lovely Christmas, and a nice new year spent with a few friends in Whitby.

Then to Lee Abbey -an Anglican retreat centre - situated in remote North Devon. No mobile phones worked, so bliss and frustration mixed equally. Had a lovely time with a group of (mainly) Anglican ordinands and their families. What a privilege to have 4 days trying to make the case for a mission minded church!

Today has been spent in London. This morning Ruby and I led the new year service for Connexional Staff members at Wesley's Chapel. Ruby produced the service and came up with some excellent ideas which I hope were helpful. I certainly felt that it was a real honour to lead worship with the Team, especially given the difficult and complicated situation many of them are in. In spite of that they retain grace, humour and friendliness.

Then a long business meeting in London mainly relating to the 'coming job' rather than the one I am undertaking at the moment. Then up to Swanwick for the Connexional Leadership Team meeting. So a busy day but an enjoyable time. Tonight will be the first night in my own bed since 30 december! Lovely!
