Writing it down

I was wondering why I didn’t seemed to have anything to say to the blog – it may be because we are working hard on the strategy document for our Diocesan Review.  Lots of research and much discussion – but in the end you have to try and write it down.  And of course the people who are writing it down are the people who have going to have to try and carry it out.  I’ve seen more than my share of these things over the years.  Greatest crime?  To raise hope but not deliver.  Second greatest crime?  To add to the burdens of clergy without taking anything away.
