Last night, just before midnight, I flopped into bed having survived NEXUS. It’s been a long week and very tiring. It’s been great to watch an event go through a cycle from empty hall through build up and then back to an empty hall again. I’ve met some great people and had some fun. I’ve walked miles and stood up for much longer than is good for you.
As for NEXUS, I’m not sure what my impressions are. There are some parts that seemed to work well but others that didn’t.
I had a thought last night that perhaps most of the the event had been about resourcing the church to stay as it is, not to move forward, and I hope I’m wrong in that. I know that some people who came found the exhibition interesting and enthusing. What I can say, without doubt, is that the coffee was great and the friendships enduring. Maybe that’s what church should be all about.
You can download some of the seminars from the NEXUS website.
