two years ago at greenbelt i chatted with sarah roberts about pioneering. she had felt restless and was giving up her job teaching to venture into something new. i asked her 'what's the dream?' - she answered that the dream was to support young people who had parents in prison and somehow link them up better. nobody seemed to be offering this. her own experience in teaching had highlighted how difficult it was for those families. unknown to me that was the first time sarah had articulated out loud what it was she wanted to do. well a bit less than two years on and she has been researching, exploring, offering support, connecting with others working in that field, gaining experience, doing some training with the cms pioneer course... and she starts work today with families outside in a role that they are creating to support this dream. and it is a charity based in her home city of edinburgh. it's amazing how this has come together! she is now a mission associate with cms.
if you haven't seen it this video she created reversible thinking is brilliant. congrats sarah and we look forward to seeing how your prioneering develops!
what's your dream?
