Signs of Life


Encouraging day today. Hung out at home a little more than usual and took it slow.

Two encouraging meetings took place today. One was with Mike Todd. Mike is one of the first bloggers I started reading. I was excited to finally be able to meet him today. We shared lunch and gabbed. He said a lot of good things. I hope he writes a book but if he doesn’t, I’m stealing his stuff and publishing it. I walked away encouraged by what God is doing in his life, and grateful to have made a face-to-face connection.

Tonight, our church board met. We’ve been having some really good meetings this year, facing up to where we are and rethinking what we ought to be doing. I wish I could report that we have all the solutions but we don’t. What we do have is a set of three really good priorities and a strong desire to act on them. I have the sense that we’re not just playing the church game, we’re actually trying to get into some Kingdom business.

That was a good day. As Samuel Pepys would say, “and so to bed.”
