Good to be back on the hill far away

Good to be back in Riverlea and the Tshwane-hill, although its freezing, according to SA standards. According to the weatherprophets- it was -4C last night here in the north. Anyway, it makes sense to be back and to reflect on my experiences with colleages and with members of our faith community, the Alpha Community. This in a sense is a time of working through the experiences and allowing the Body to temper one's concentrated views. This is sometimes humbling, but also importantly grounding, (rooting) you in your community of faith, in the reality of our community life. This means: amongst others reports to be finnished, scrips and assignments to be marked, meetings to be set up and children to be taken to school, recorder and violin lessons and feeding the Zazza, our German ( yes, German) sheperd dog. In the midst of it all- I think- we need to explore the what it means to be church....

Musings.....
