Cool quote - and Christchurch adventures

Cool quote from the youth alpha training day I'm doing right now.

"Beware equally of an undevotional theology and of an untheological devotion". Bishop Handley Moule (an Anglican bishop circa 19th century)

Read that a few times... Great statement worth pondering on.

Im having a blast with some very crazy youth workers from the chch. Over the next few days I'm looking forward to spending time with Steve Taylor, the NZ emerging church guru, and Mike Dodge, the craziest guy I have met in a while and a veteran youth worker of 25 years, Dave and Scottie from grace vineyard, and hopefully get a wave in if the planets align just right.

Being thinking a lot about humility recently, and so post on its way soon... I've being wrestling with some of this stuff for the last 4 years, and am a poster boy for learning this stuff the hard way... and I'm the first to admit that I am still a very very proud git.

Must stop emailing in this training day...

Behave yourself (or have fun being naughty)

    Good quote indeed.

    I'm looking forward to reading your post on humility as I am also taking a very close look at not only humility but pride also, and how it affects our relationship with God.

    I have a bad habit of complicating things...

    hah- 'untheological devotion' doesn't that sum up my excuse everytime for 'selling the field' as brook would call it.

    pondering a plenty.
