So what is next?

That is so often the question after a conference!

Flourish 2012 happened almost 2 months ago and we have all gone back to our lives and ministries. We have got back into the routines of life and are busy with the normal flow of things in our lives. For me that has meant sick kids (winter is like that!), teaching Sunday School, work, housework, meeting with friends, meetings, reading, watching movies and a whole range of day to day activities that are just too routine to mention. With a son in year 12 and a daughter about to change schools there always seems to be something going on in our household.

So where do we go from here?

Last Thursday I had the chance to share about what happened at Flourish with a group of women here in Perth. It was a small group - as is so often the case here - but none had been able to attend either conference and few really knew much of what it was about so it was a great chance to open up the discussions with these ladies.

The good thing was getting to open up the topic and the history. The difficult thing is that such a session can really only give a small glimpse of what went on over 2 days back in July in Sydney!

So what is next? More talking I suspect! More prayer, I hope. More opportunities to talk with individuals about how women and men can partner together to reach out to people with the Good News that Jesus loves them and has died to set us free.

What a great post Margaret. I pray that you will have the opportunity to meet and chat and encourage and pray. Great to be reminded of that today.

By the way... that was me commenting! Not Alistair.
