What happens when an Anglican, an Orthodox, a Baptist and a Pentecostal all sit down for lunch? Almost 3 hours of conversation and laughter!!!
It really is lovely to sit at a restaurant on the deck with the sea breeze keeping the air fresh on such a lovely autumn afternoon, even lovelier to do so in such good company! No shortage of things to talk about and at least one outlandish topic of conversation, this pretty normal for us. This time around it was the suggestion of a new ministry, an Orthodox/Pentecostal fellowship headed up by Ian, I think I’ll be called in for Pentecostalising such a congregation… could be fun…
We finished of our lunch (3 pad thais – pads thai? and a Vietnamese beef salad – followed by fried icecream for 2 and death by chocolate and warm iced chocolate for others) with fortune cookies… I believe the others will post the contents of theirs… mine was … “Be on alert for a new opportunity” It sounds very like a prophecy I had once (oops, that Pentecostalism just slipped out… ) I’ll let you know if anything comes of it!!
All in all it’s been a fabulous week/weekend with one thing and another… still, I’m looking forward to the day off tomorrow and a the chance to relax a little… it’s been full speed ahead for quite some time!
