Roots Report

Unlike last year, I don’t have several reports! As I feared, there were several ways in which it didn’t connect. Don’t get me wrong, the theme, ‘Others’ is one that I am passionate about..but Roots just didn’t meet me this year. Maybe it just didn’t go far enough for me, maybe it was helpful to others, as I prayed it would. Living and praying in hope for next year: ‘Roots 2008 – Going Public’

On the pastoral team, it was good to catch up with a young man I prayed with last year who at this years Roots took the step forward to sign up for soldiership…hallelujah!

The things that really bugged me are things I can’t blog on so you’ll just have to be content with silence :o)

I did, however, buy a new book called ’10 on the Army’ by Major Geoff Ryan. Another collection of essays from this writer who continually challenges me. I don’t always agree with some of Geoff’s conclusions, however, I do totally appreciate his heart and why he says the things he says. I’d challenge any Salvationist (again) to read his stuff and NOT be stirred!

  1. Hi Andrew – good to catch up with you at Roots. I’d be interested to know what “bugged” you – feel free to drop me a line (in confidence, of course). There were a few things that I could do with chatting through as well, so if you’re up for that please do get in touch.
