If I had a dream: Put me and 10 other student ministers down somewhere for a week and tell us to work for a revival in that place. Give us a church building and some resources. And a free hand.
Man, that should be so good. And that's what we've got at phase 1 college.
There are problems, though. The student ministers have a morale that is pretty close to rock bottom. Maybe there are one or two that are ok, but most of us are finished. Just tired, homesick and so on.
We've also got two weeks to prepare - which means the Tuesday and Wednesday of two weeks. They couldn't reasonably give us more time, but the time is not enough. We still have to write our polity exam this Tuesday - that takes energy!
So we have what I think is a great idea, and as I say, something I could dream about. But I don't think we will be able to do it justice.
