Ok, so it’s been a while, in fact, it’s been nearly two years. Blogging has always been one of those things that I have good intentions about, but without much follow through. This time I’m a little more determined!
Sitting in Aldergrove airport with a group of students about to fly to Barcelona and then on to the island of Ibiza to work with 24-7 Ibiza for a couple of weeks. The contrast of going on this trip with the last few days at the Irish Methodist Conference is somewhat stark, and yet both fill me with a sense of excitement and challenge. We’ve spent some time talking about the mission of the church… who and what is God calling us to be and do? There appears to be a stirring in the church that we need to get serious about the mission calling of the church. Such a stirring is exciting, but also personally frustrating, I’m impatient, let’s get on with it.
So now I have to ‘put my money where my mouth is’ as it were. There’s no hiding on the streets of San Antonio… So many people apparently having fun, but in so much need. Some people think it is a godless place, but God is there, present by his spirit, and in the hearts and lives of his people… for the next 2 weeks it has to be us… That’s the challenge!
Please pray we will have the words and the hearts to serve!
Bring it on!
