A late night lesson

As I write this it’s late on Friday night.  I’m tired and Seth is asleep. He is a great kid but this is one of those nights where he didn’t want to sleep and was just generally grumpy, therefore mum and dad are very much “on duty”.

The Feedback loop

The Feedback Loop Have you ever heard of a church or organisation that is cliquish? Have you been accused of it yourself?

I really believe the danger of a clique is in the feedback loop it creates and the unity problems that will then show up as a result. Interested in hearing more? Check out the video and make sure you leave a comment. Looking forward to hearing from...
