Some excellent lessons

Jonny Baker (from jonnybaker) has been running the cms pioneer mission leadership training. He has written some reflections on the fresh expressions web site about the things that he has learnt over the last two years. These are some good lessons:

  1. Not fitting in is a wonderful gift
  2. ‘Why not?’ and ‘what if?’ are at the heart of pioneering
  3. The church says it wants pioneers but…
  4. Pioneers thrive in community
  5. We’re still only at the start of something

Who will make the most difference?

This past week has seen two very important elections take place. The winners of these elections will both have a massive impact on the world. Both come from very priveleged backgrounds and both live in very weathly countries. Both hold positions of incredible power and people will hang on their every word. Both will be critisized, not matter what decision they make or camp that they support. My question is, who over the next four years, will make a difference in the world? All prayers and blessings for Justin and Barack.

About me

I am an African living in Scotland. A son, a father, an ex-husband, a boyfriend, a teacher and friend trying to piece together the stories that my God, my parents, my ex-wife, my girlfriend, my pupils and my friends are telling me, so that I can tell my own story. Thanks to all for your support and advice. I still love good coffee and popcorn.
