Well, rather to my surprise – yes. And more than I have had time to do for a long time. I’m deep into George Lovell’s remarkable [but weighty] Consultancy, Ministry and Mission. He seems to me to have sorted out the challenge of finding the balances .. between leadership, collaboration and authority. He talks about the need for ‘Collaborative reflective practitioners, churches and communities’ I’ve just sent for Rural Children, Rural Church which suggests that one in five of the rural population is a child – and that many of them are socially isolated. And for a little light reading, I’ve been pointed towards ‘The Blogging Church’ – which may help me to become deeply purposeful about this exercise rather than just using it for my personal therapy.
