I've been finding it a wee bit of a struggle to keep the blog updated due to sheer work/play load lately: Work has been busy - strategy weekend away (a few weeks back), planning a sermon series for November, working on some new ideas for helping people grow with Jesus day-by-day, meeting with various people about a variety of things, Alpha, writing small group material and an ordination training weekend; play has been busy - games every Saturday, training as many Tuesdays and Thursdays as I can make and organising a team night out for last Saturday.
On top of all of this I've been striving to prioritise time with YKW as well as upping the level of my reading - of the bible but also of other books, Christian and non-Christian. YKW and I have also dabbled in becoming internet sellers (of our old DVD's); a venture which cost us almost as much as we made from it, have finished the final series of Prison Break and are starting to plan a trip for next summer (which means no skiing this year).
I feel that I'm in a really good place with God at the moment - which is the highlight of everything that's been happening. I am hearing Him speak as I read the bible and spend time in prayer, I am learning new things about myself and others and I am genuinely excited (though apprehensive too) about what the future holds.
