– Juli Allen from Houston arrived yesterday and will be with us for a few weeks. She is a ‘guinea pig’ on a pilot training trail that some of us are experimenting with – a kind of alternative to traditional ministry training that involves spending quality time at a number of highly relational emerging mission communities. She just came over from Prague and Switzerland and Germany and will be in Greenbelt and Telford – all with friends of ours and all orchestrated by Shannon Hopkins from her evil headquarters in London. She is working with me on some writing projects this week. This picture was taken at one of the old monasteries in Orkney – at Birsay.
– Jenna White is from North Carolina and she joined our crazy family last week in Inverness. Same thing. Pilgrimage among friends and contacts overseas. Getting and giving. Learning and serving. Here she is climbing the ruins of the 16th Century Earls Palace.
– Will Smith left a few weeks ago to go down south. Nice guy. We like him and wish him the best with his studies at Abilene.
