Well it’s a week and a bit since Vision Sunday. I wonder if you’ve managed to hold onto a clear image of the picture presented. I’ve certainly heard a lot of enthusiastic talk in the church family about connect09 and about the part each one of us can play. But one challenge for us in the lead-up to next year is to turn all that great talk into great action. One thing that we can all do (and that we can help each other do) is to work carefully through the “my part in connect 09” booklet and return the green survey form to the church office.
In the booklet you’ll find that there is a huge variety of ways to be vitally involved in connect09. There is literally something (in fact MANY things) for everyone! And don’t feel bad if you can’t “tick many boxes”. As we heard from Katja on Sunday, the most important things are things that you can’t tick. To date, we’ve only received 9 surveys back. 9 out of 10 is pretty good. 9 out of about 250 is… well let’s be positive – it’s a start! I can only assume that everyone is being very thoughtful and prayerful and getting each other’s advice before they hand it in. Great idea! But don’t take forever, connect09 will be upon us before we know it!
