New Role

"So, what do you do," asked my friend when learning of my appointment as the new General Secretary for Mennonite Church Canada. I blinked back, straight faced, searching wildly for an impressive answer.

"I, ..... I, ..... do, ..... general, ......... ah, ..... secretar - ial, ..... duties, ... and, ...stuff," I smiled back with my most important looking smile.

Thank God for friends, with low expectations, who will allow me time to discover this new role.

I am actually quite excited about the opportunity of helping our Area Churches and congregations be part of God's activity in this world.

If you follow this blog, we will discover together exactly what it is that the General Secretary does. But more importantly, what it is that God is up to across the country in our Area Churches and congregations.
