I love the time between Christmas and New Year.  I find it’s a time to make a lot of progress with some of our bigger projects, but I also enjoy the opportunity to think about goals for the coming year.  Here are some of the thoughts I scribbled in my journal:

Slowing: the pace I’ve set myself over the last few years isn’t sustainable over a long period of time.  When I arrived at Tonbridge Baptist Church I said my intention was to plan to be part of the staff-team, God willing, at least until 2020 (12 years later) but I know I couldn’t keep the pace I’ve kept over the last eighteen months for another day years, it’s time to slow.

Balance: I’m passionate about my work but sometimes I need to remember to invest better in family and friends.  I’ve also been challenged to review the different ministries, activities and roles that I have as a youth leader and check the balances to ensure I’m prioritising the most important things.

Growth: I’ve got a real thing about 2010 being a year where I grow personally, and we see real growth, both numerically and in depth within our youth work.

I’m excited about the coming year, what about you, anything that resonates with you.
