Our Summer has been spent using DVD material from Sy Rogers. We used his material called Lessons Learned and it really was excellent. I was deeply challenged by his repeated challenge to those in ministry to strongly guard the personal boundaries between work/ministry and private life. I want to be healthy in ministry and I can really see the risks of too much access. I really can see it.
I am travelling next week to Living Waters Training in Kansas City, KS. I serve as regional coordinator for this area and I love what this brings into my life. However, I am not yet a good regional. I think there is a drastic learning curve to taking care of people you don't see often and who don't ask for your help. I think it takes creating community in some way…and this is challenging. I tend to be an out-of-sight-out-of-mind gal and it takes something to change it.
I've not posted this week (except for a few stray comments) because I'm busy. It's not fun to be this busy…no phone calls to friends…talking about work even when I'm home…blah blah blah.
