My celebratory journey is now half way through and so I’m beginning to take stock of the year as well as continue to celebrate. (This week includes a treasure hunt, staff Christmas lunch, Theatre trip and other delights)
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my journeys. Its been great to be doing them and to be positive and intentional but more than anything I have come to the conclusion that the best form of intentionality, which leads to honesty, accountability and meaning is to be intentional in community.
My small group, family, friendships, Work Colleagues, Rhythms, Breathe, Advent 20 and Thank You Today are some very significant communities which I want to say thank you for and celebrate. Thank you for the honesty, fun and learning that has come from being part of these amazing communities.
I am grateful also for the concept of community in terms of lives lived out that inspire and challenge and encourage and also great perspectives and insights.
The Brian McLaren talk at St Pauls last week was once such example
Being recommended a good read called The Tangible Kingdom after a great conversation was another
The excellent Nomad Podcast yet another
#thankyoutoday for community and friendship
