And now the fun begins
Friday, Oct. 9, 2009
It's Friday morning, and the sun has risen in Crete (trust me, I saw it happen, which if you know me means I was up earlier than I typically like to be. I actually heard a rooster crow after my shower. That's too early).
The past two days have been largely orientation and introduction to the work ahead of us. Today we get started in the nitty-gritty discussion of issues, and hearing from different traditions. It might sound boring to have had two days of introduction, but in truth it’s all groundwork – by now, the 150 of us who are gathered actually know each other a bit, and have already shared worship and meals and fellowship.
It's all part of the journey together. Somehow Christian unity seems more possible when you’re working with the person who was eating scrambled eggs and toast across the table from you just a few hours ago.
