Having a good time in sunny Leicestershire at the Newly Accredited Ministers' conference. Pat Took has been doing the Bible readings (scintillating) and I spoke yesterday on leadership (what Occupy and chaos theory contribute to our reading of Paul) which was well received and led to a pretty lively discussion.
This seems to be a good and relatively content group of NAMs with some really heartening stories of what's happening in their churches - which is a huge encouragement. My small group is full of stories and is a wonderfully diverse bunch, indicating that baptist ministry is in rude health.
Planning continues apace for the street party on Sunday. I have an excellent team of people in my church!
