Casting the Net Day

Good day today – we welcomed Mark Russell, Chief Executive of Church Army, and gathered together some of our facilitators, Liaison Officers and clergy.  As we’ve moved forward with Mission Action Plans, we’ve gradually come to be more aware of the vocational dimension of all this.  Which sounds a bit grand – but it actually is a ‘binding together’ dimension to it all.

Mark and I had never met – which is strange because he attended Portadown College and grew up in that remarkable community the day before yesterday.  So we had a sort of Northern Ireland – or Norn Irn – exiles thing which was mutually refreshing but not of the slightest interest to anybody else.  But he was great.


  1. It was a privilege to be with you on Saturday. I really enjoyed the day immensely. It was a joy to spend time with you and Alison, and as you say it was great to have some Norn Iron time :-). Every blessing – Mark

  2. This was a really good day – truly inspirational preaching and excellent chat. One of those rare times you arrive home charged up with ideas, ready to tell people you wish they’d been there!
