I guess once a week blogging turned into once a month…
It’s been quite a week. We started out with our team retreat, which went really well – one of our best ones ever, I thought. There was just a really good vibe in the group, an alchemical mystery I don’t know how to replicate for the future.
Then the earthquake in Ecuador. Gimli has been working overtime to work out our role there – we have three staff in Quito, and connections to churches in the affected area.
I’ve also been talking with my boss and another team member about some long-term lingering issues, interpersonal kinds of things, that have been hard for the duration of our time here. That’s pretty scary.
And there’s a bit of a tempest in a teapot over church politics that won’t make sense outside of our denominational network.
And my in-laws are selling their house (in the US) this summer and would like us to buy it.
