I love my work for a whole bunch of reasons. Who wouldn’t love it when you’re job is to share the most life-changing news with people full-time?!
I also love the people I work with, and particularly my boss.
Here’s just a couple of reasons from monday.
1: We were having a staff development day, and I started the day joking about how I’d told me wife that we’d be going to a favourite restaurant for lunch, just to stir a little. So what does he do? He actually takes us there!
Just to top things off, his lovely wife also took Shona & the twins there too!
2: During the work part of the day we worked through a leadership profile thing not unlike Myers Briggs. It was fantastic. It’s a lovely affirmation to see that different areas where we do things reflect different skill sets we have. It’s also great to see new ways that we can work together, using each other’s skill sets effectively.
3: After all of this, despite the fact that it was his day off, he came around & fixed up our front door lock, taught me how to replace washers in a tap, then helped me fix a towel rail too!
What’s almost as good as telling people the good news about Jesus Christ, his death and resurrection? Having a boss who displays what this actually means to him in the way he lives his life!
A nice challenge for me to live up to.
Oh, I better not forget the food!
