far too long…

It’s been quite a while since the last post – no particular reason…think I lost the rhythm of posting for a little while.  Anyway, back now…

Update…can’t believe Sephi is now 6 months old.  I’m told this is the lot of Fatherhood…time flies ridiculously quickly!  Work is great, lots of new challenges, including developing a new web presence for the team, but also lots of busy-ness, including a whole heap of Saturday working…

Church is good – ENC celebrates becoming a Bishop’s Mission Order…a major step in the life of a Fresh Expression…indeed I think we’re the first one in the country.  As such, this marks a new phase of our life together.  All very exciting.

We’re still keen to explore the community living thing – just looking and waiting for the right opportunity to emerge, trying to get a sense of God’s timing on this.  Who know’s what might be around the corner.

On that note, I was chatting with a youth worker and friend that I mentor today.  One of the things we worked through was the idea of ‘God of the unexpected’ – the way in which God is completely unpredictable in how he works.  Now, this can be a bit of a problem if you want a God who’s tied up in nice little boxes, or if you’re trying to explain who God is to someone who relies solely on reason or logic.  But it excites me to think that God appears right in the messiness of everyday life where we least expect him to be.  I suppose this is why the missional encounter is so important – we may learn more about God from the people we spend time with then they do from us.

So, life continues…

As someone once said… ‘grace and peace’
