Church life right now is exciting and engaging... and very full on.
This is a rare week - I have no service to prepare as we have staff and students from the Scottish Baptist College visiting us.
This means I have the unexpected gift of some breathing space - a bit of 'sabbathing' where I can refresh my mind and soul more deeply, and rest my body a little more intentionally.
Time to think a little bit strategically, time to listen to helpful podcasts, to dip into books, to pray and simply to be.
So, yes, I am actually practising what I preached on Sunday!
