As many of you know I work in a church, and by today’s (church community) standards we are partially an “Emergent” Church. Our evening service is all there, and our morning services are learning to understand it.
The reason that I mention the Emergent Church, and me working in a church is that we (as staff) are on a constant learning curve. I love to read, but find it very difficult to make time for the less-than-lighter side of work related books. At present I have two books on my bedside table demanding my professional attention. The first is a book called ”Raising Children At Promise”, and I really want to read this one. Not having children of my own, but being so deeply involved with the wee folk I want to be as adroit as possible to understanding and equip our future leaders, mothers, labourers, school teachers, CEO’s, etc. as possible.
Also a part of that stack of bedside equivalent to Sleep-Eze D is ”The Adventure of Discipling Others” - the fine art of mentoring and guiding others with their walk with God.
Is it just me, or is there a pattern here? Do you think ‘someone’ is trying to tell me something?
I’ve only just (last night) finished the fourth book in Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic series of fiction books. Light and funny reading. I am loath to dredge my brain up to a higher standard of input. I’ve really got to get my nose to the grindstone and get into the above-mentioned “educational” books. Can’t you just hear those neurons firing???
It’s all good. That’s what I keep telling myself – It’s all good!!! I’ll come out the other side a better person ….
