This last week I enjoyed a two day training workshop with the team of men and women who facilitate Renewal Retreats in Queensland with the Churches of Christ Conference. Great to meet up with some old friends and meet many of the newer facilitators.
We have established a dropbox system to share notes and this is now active.
I had never been up to the Bunya Mountains in SE Queensland before, so it was great to have Monday leading four sessions at the Darling Downs Presbytery retreat.
We looked at life cycles in rural churches, consultancy processes, and systemic health in churches. Great to meet many of the ministers in this region.
