Heading Over the Pond

On Sunday I’m heading over to England for four one-day workshops. Half of the workshops are for arts and worship leaders, and the other half are for women in church leadership. I have gone to the UK in the past to teach about the arts, but never about women in leadership. To my surprise, the workshops for women will be larger than the others, which obviously reveals a strong felt need from that audience. I look forward to discovering what we have in common, and what is different for both arts leaders and women in churches over there. My hosts will be Graeme Paris, the wonderful leader of the Willow Creek Association UK, and his delightful wife, Helen.

Meanwhile, my husband is serving in Africa for two weeks. When we had to be away from our daughters during their toddler and grammar school years, they would cry and plead with us not to go. My how things have changed! At this point, I feel like I’m being nudged out the door. Hopefully they will miss us at least a little bit…

I am not taking along my computer, as much as that may shock you. So there will be no blog postings for about 8 days, and then I’ll try to report back what God did among the Brits and in my heart.

Bless you all in this first week of March, and may Spring come very, very, very soon…

Again I extend the invitation for you to visit (WARM) South Florida and speak to the women in leadership here...we'd be so honored to sit under yours.

Heather,
Florida sounds really, really good after the winter we've had!
Thanks for the kind invitation. At this point we're not scheduling any events for women in the U.S. except the one in August at Willow before the Summitt. But we'll see how God leads...
Hope you're doing well!
