Also, I'd recommend in the meantime that you follow Mark Lawrence writing about servant leadership (a vitally important issue for the church right now) - the first couple of posts indicate it's going to be an excellent series.

A Pause in Blogging
Okay, so I've not been blogging. Here's why. In a few days, I go off for a five month sabbatical - a rest from my role as senior leader at Community Church Huddersfield. I have been in that role for the last fifteen years. I recognise that I need rest and refreshing, and that God needs to do some restorative work in me. I had realised that this would mean a break from blogging for some of that time at least - this season needs to be far more about what God wants to say to me rather than what I want to say to others! So what happened is that once I knew that I was going off on this sabbatical, I kind of lost the impetus to blog; my mind has been far more on the spiritual and practical preparations for this crucial step. So now I just need to accept that the blogging has already stopped. And I won't be blogging for at least the next two months. But I hope that my readers will come back and take a look in early June - I may well be back to the blog by then, with hopefully some richer stuff as a result of what God will be doing in me. In the meantime, I'd appreciate your prayers for myself and for the church. This is going to be a really significant time for us.
