Will the bird fly?

After watching the Sea Eagle remain obstinately in its tree … it was back to the Diocesan Review meetings this evening.  In a way, it’s the same question – about whether or how the bird will fly.  Every time I have been involved in these processes, it has come down to the same tension.  Too organised, managerial, controlled and controlling.  Or too spiritual, wistful, relational.  The answer lies, of course, in a Goldilocks ‘just right’ which isn’t just the mid point between the two positions but which is in some measure a synthesis.
