I'm still busy - not much more to say! But I took my day off on Friday with determination - helped by the fact that I haven't been feeling well. Tomorrow is the Covenant Service in Strandfontein and also the Khayelitsha section of the circuit. It's going to be a long day. Then next week is a seminar in Johannesburg for student ministers. I do sort of wish that I didn't have to leave my circuit while I am still trying to sort out the pieces, but the timing isn't actually too bad. I've got going with circuit work and a break now shouldn't hurt too much.
The main skill that I am using at the moment is prioritisation - there is so much that could be done, but there is no way that I can do it all. On my desk are applications for membership, baptisms, ideas and dreams from the finance people from both societies (nice), resolutions from the Methodist Conference that were referred to the Circuit Quarterly Meetings and more that I can't think of off the top of my head. Today I have a meeting with Youth leaders from one society and of course final prep for the Covenant Service.
God is good - and I really need him!

Interesting reports about circuit sections, circuit work, circuit meetings, leaving the circuit ... now we eagerly await your POPPING a circuit, as this should make most interesting blogging.

Only trouble is that when my circuits pop I don't blog - so you never get the gory detail. So sad :-)
Of course, circuits are a completely different thing in your life - the life of the electronics designer, aren't they?

Yes that's all about SHORT circuits ... :-)
