I was thrilled to be away last Sunday (kind of)

Last Sunday was brilliant at burlington and so thrilling to hear how things flourished in my absence. You can listen to it here:

I was so encouraged by it because ….

  • Story-telling is very powerful. John is right. A story has much more weight than just the principle alone
  • God is more at work when we are scattered than when we are gathered. It’s not all about the gathering
  • Everyone can do the stuff. Disciples can encourage disciples
  • The Senior Minister is not indispensable He knows that (!) but sometimes people behave as if he is.
  • Ministry is about modelling, empowering and releasing not doing and controlling

Honestly, the above audio is worth a listen. Stories of ordinary people discovering that God is up to something extraordinary with them.
