at cms pioneer training we have a day each year where we explore a particular theme in pioneering mission. these conversations days have been really wonderful and have led to books like the pioneer gift or future present. this year's theme is art and mission. if you know me you will know i love both those things! there is a day in both the south and the north - oxford and penrith respectively. i am currently sat in penrith so have been talking about that one and it sounds great - ends up with a gallery space with wine and nibbles after a day of workshops and exploration. the oxford one also looks amazing with a whole range of contributors including davd benjamin blower, lou baker, iain cotton... info on who is taking part in the oxford one is in this blog post from sarah clarke who will be framing the day at both.
