Afternoon tea in Leongatha in January
I've quite surpassed my summer reading goals and I might even fit in another one or two books before Uni begins and the end of summer is official. I've even read some non-fiction books lately (those who know me will be shocked!). Jen Hatmaker's Interrupted and 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess make for very compelling and challenging reading. The timing has been perfect though.
I have been more than a little shocked over the last week as Dh has agreed to undertake not only a year-long leadership preparation program, but also a church-wide 3-week fast. Both are way out of his comfort zone so I deeply admire that he willing to do these with me. We have chosen a 'Daniel Fast' so after a great deal of research our fridge is now overflowing with fruits and vegetables that will suit our restrictions and tastes. I had consider doing Jen Hatmaker's '7' fast, but our purpose and intention are not about addressing a wealthy culture's excess, but about seeking God in a number of corporate topics within our church and a couple of personal issues as well.
