Seven More Years...

This photo showed up in my 'memories' on social media today.  I took it exactly seven years ago, just a few weeks before the Gatherers moved out of the building for 'two years'. At the time I had been at the church for seven years... so it all feels a bit 'Biblical' with seven years and seven years more, not least as I am now roughly seven years off retirement age... 

The best laid plans, and all that... I remember, like yesterday, the first time I set foot in the Gathering Place, the day we closed the door after the last service, and, indeed, the day I handed over the keys to the developer. 

Seven years in a building, seven years without a building... all were, on the whole, 'good years' with much to celebrate.

This weekend, as I am formally inducted to my new roles, which could be as much as seven years. I do so grateful for the 14 years in the Gathering place, and for the 6 years in Dibley that went before them.

For all that has been 'thanks', for what is still to come, 'yes'
