Sometimes one lurches rather from one thing to another. I spent part of the afternoon with a group of people trying to work out how diocesan structures might be redesigned. The challenge is to work out how the structures might encourage growth. It’s not easy. So after banging my head against that wall for a while, it was quite a relief to head away up the glen above Blairgowrie for the AGM of our congregation in Ballintuim. Characters all, they are a remarkably hospitable and social group. We dispatched the AGM fairly swiftly and moved on to the socialising. Among the nuggets of information which ‘might come in useful some day’ was some information about how to float my Land Rover across the Zambezi River on three canoes. You just never know.
