The weekend that was: this last week Hannah and I have been on holiday with my wider family in St. Andrews. It was lovely to spend some time away, chilling, eating lots of good food, and reading loads of books. Saturday was spent sitting on trains all day travelling back to Tonbridge.
Sunday was my first day back into the office, so clicking through some of the emails, getting into one of the morning services, and preparing and running our parents and young people’s meeting for camp, which this year is going to be at Hebron Hall. That all seemed to go very smoothly. In the evening one of our elders was preaching on Jesus healing the paralytic man – it was a great message – always a blessing to be taught by such passionate people.
On my task list this week: I’m only in work two days this week, so trying to cram lots of prep in for speaking at a holiday club next week, and sorting prep for the autumn and beyond. Wednesday onwards I’ve got a few days off to try and do some jobs at home, and spend time with Hannah sorting out all the practical things that need doing – top of our list is looking to replace the kitchen.
Procrastinating about: Going through all the emails from the last week or so.
Book I’m in the midst of: Really enjoying It: How Churches and Leaders Can Get it and Keep it by Craig Groeschel and Youth Work After Christendom (After Christendom) by Nigel & Jo Pimlott.
Music that I’ve been working along to: With the holiday there’s been no music – so nothing to report on here.
How I’m feeling about this week: Slightly stressed about getting enough done before my time off, but looking forward to having a chance ot get some of the house projects started, and maybe even done.
