Our internship group is going off in our Quantum mini-bus this morning - destination unknown. That's ok with me. Something that one does learn in Methodist training is not to expect to know what's happening or to be able to plan in much detail (last year's lessons and this). It doesn't bother me because I don't have to achieve anything. If I am obedient I will win. Simple lesson for training.
I'm not sure that it is helpful, though, for a minister to arrive in a church with this 'oh well, let's do it whenever' attitude if he or she has to work with people who are used to the tight schedules of the business world. Laid back can be cool in a leader or it can be extremely frustrating.
Oh, well - I'll try not to be too damaged by my training!
