enjoy your holiday!

Following my comments yesterday about folk in the air hold-up I just have to fly the flag for my good friend and colleague, Jez. I sent him a rude text yesterday as I discovered he was 'stuck' in Tenerife on holiday. I'm happy to report it's not just me - he's enjoying four days extra holiday - must be something about Regional Ministers not taking life seriously enough, I guess!
The other really great news this morning was to hear a church, which left our network years ago has decided to re-join. For me, this is of huge symbolic significance way out of proportion to the size, or anything else. I hope it will send a message we're essentially biblical in our ethos to anyone else who's living with an out-of-date perspective of Baptists today. Of course, the real work now begins in trying to facilitate another church and help them orientate even more to presenting Jesus in today's world.

Glad you're encouraged. Shame Liverpool will spoil your day!
