A good session with MayBE

At our staff residential yesterday we had a really good session with Ian Adams from the MayBE community in Oxford.

What I really liked about MayBe is that around their focus of Christ Centred Community they have identified core values, each of which has a guardian entrusted to protect and nuture these elements of their community and worshipping life. These values are:
GRACE

WONDER
GRIT
RESISTANCE
LAUGHTER
PRESENCE
PLAY
I really like this list and what it represents, I’ve found that Grit, Wonder and Play have really stuck with me since our time talking yesterday, I especially love the fact that a ‘Church’ holds Play as a core value.
I’m left reflecting on underlying values in the ministry I have through the Diocese, both the consciously communicated values and the ones that are implied through actions and attitudes.
