THE WEEKEND PLAN (so far)
Friday 9 June
For those who can come earlier on Friday:
Try to get to Glendalough as soon as we can (leave Dublin 11ish), lunch on the way or at Glendalough Hotel. We’ll try to walk the monastic site and lake walks together and have some time with AJ. This is for anyone who can make it up that early.
Everyone else should try to arrive by 6. Settle in at the hostel (details below).
Dinner 7ish at the local pub
After dinner and till Saturday mid-afternoon, we are under AJ's tutelage. This means we will engage with several pertinent questions about church planting, ecclesiology, the Irish cultural and spiritual scene, and whatever else, during this time. Andrew is adept at leading groups like this with no pre-ordained agenda, so this will, we suspect, be his forte. Phil has a list of questions that have been pre-submitted: we'll look them over then tweak them. The tweaked questions will likely provide a starting place for our discussions.
IMPORTANT: What’s are the key questions you would love to see addressed over these days???
Bring them along with you and we’ll try to make sure they get raised.
