The teaching received from Don Carson, Mike Reeves, Jason Clarke, Tim Rudge and Pablo Martinez has given me much to think about and implement into life and ministry, the shape of marriage, parenting, upcoming ministry and refining my sabbatical plans. I enjoyed arriving late and having dinner with David Field (the dinner not the lateness) on the first evening. Happy times.
The standouts for me were our evening of culture with the outstanding Lewis Green & Clive Parnell, Ally Gordon & Luci "Bimbo" Metcalf, and Dan Peterson & Cully, and the (often late night) conversations with colleagues about the need for creative, engaging, imaginative life.
More reflections on those to follow when I wake up - for all the quality moments my confession is I stayed up too late all week and my face isn't lying about the tiredness.
