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!
