The Weekend

It's Saturday morning, and I am enjoying a quiet moment and a cup of coffee before it all starts up again. It's been a really busy week, this week. A week of contrasts that illustrates life in the ministry. I am heavily involved in education and educational management here. This week a parent got very worked up because he felt a minor clause in the parent-teacher association constitution had been infringed. No-one else was especially bothered, but it took a lot of time to sort out. While this was going on, I got a call to say that a member of the church was in hospital and in intensive care.

Isn't this just like life? A mixture of the trivial and the serious. The temptation is to dismiss the trivial and not take any interest in it, but if the Gospel is about the whole of life that means taking all of it seriously, even boring matters like constitutional niceties.

Have a good weekend everyone! See you- with the next post in the present series - on Monday.
