Daft Raft and the Wellie Throwing Contest

Its been a great week here in Stromness with the Shopping Week celebrations. For the record, I came second in the Wellie [Gumboot] throwing contest and third in the 100m run against the other dads.

The noisy pink raft called Shiela’s Wheels was the most interesting contestant in the Daft Raft race. We are talking about entering a raft next year.

I am on a ferry tonight and at High Leigh (near London) tomorrow for 24 hours with Emerging Church leaders from around UK. Ryan Bolger and Karen Ward will join us.


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)


  • I’m interested, Andrew, to what extent do you see your present role towards emerging church leaders as apostolic? Are there any others in the movement that you would see has taking that role? Being in a church myself where our leaders are supported by an apostolic team I see this as important.
