Lunch

Today I think I shall go for lunch with some friends in a small congregation group where I've had a long-time relationship. We've been through thick and thin together and just now there's a recognition of a need to just get together and have lunch.

This group and I have done lots of things together; we've had workshops, planning sessions, strategy meetings, visioning sessions. We've backed up and started over. We've taken time off and just rested. There has been healing and calling and studying and playing together.

But, you know, sometimes the best thing to do is just lunch. I'm very glad my "job" allows me enough freedom to go for lunch when that's the best thing to do. In fact, I have no trouble at all describing what I'm doing today as a big part of that "job." How much of your job relies on the strength of your relationships? I suspect a big part of it, if you're honest about it.

I hope I always remember that very, very often, the most important thing to do to move forward with whatever plans, visions, strategies, need to be moved forward is to pause along the way and work on the relationships. Just do lunch.

Have a good day, dear readers. And if you get my answering machine (should you happen to call) I'll be out--having lunch.
