Thank you to Worcester Park Baptist Church ....

I want to say 'thank you' to Worcester Park BC. As I said, to one of their members, this weekend, "you've helped me remember what a great thing it is to be a Minister in a local church'.
Maggie and I spent the weekend at Wokefield Park, which is a De Vere Hotel near Reading, leading their church weekend away. A fantastic time with all ages and the majority of their church family.
My input was on 'Cultivating Christian DNA', which enabled us to get into the territory I tend not to be able to spend much time with churches on, as a Regional Minister. It was a great reminder to me of how crucial who we are, as communities of the people of God, is sufficiently Christ-like for people to recognise Jesus among us.
As a RM, it is easy to give people the impression it's all about the big picture, vision, purpose, etc., but the reality is when the local church is working right-enough, there is nothing better placed to convey the reality of Jesus in today's generation.
