This morning I've been preparing for this afternoon's Baptism class, which is such a great privilege and pleasure.
I think what I enjoy most about this kind of group is that it is always bespoke and always has to be flexible... it's only once you start exploring together that the real questions emerge, and all your carefully considered programming must give way to responding to the needs of the group. I find it challenging, not least because my brain is sluggish these days, but I also revel in it... meeting with people who are eager, earnest and excited is infectious.
So I am excited as we count down the remaining Sundays until the big day when no less than five people will be Baptised.
Exercise to reader: what do you understand by 'evangelisation' and how is it lived out in your own walk of faith and discipleship? This is one of the questions on the list for this afternoon!
