huge congratulations to cms pioneers who graduated yesterday. it was wonderful to be able to celebrate with a mix of on site and online (the new hybrid normal). two also became lay pioneers in the church of england admitted by bishop guli of chelmsford. every year since we started graduations we have given students a tile made by artist iain cotton. there are now eight iterations of it which is fun - it has a life as a project that continues... the tiles always mark a pioneer journey on a landscape - making a way where there is no way. this year's has a boat crossing a sea and the jounrey is graced with a touch of gold. iain has done such a great job with these and this year's is just beautiful. if you want one come and study a course with us at cms pioneer mission leadership training!!!
