Selection Conference in Amman, Jordan


It’s not often you have the opportunity of listening or being listened to over a period of a few days, but that is the process of a selection Conference for those exploring vocation to ordained ministry in the Anglican Church, all in the context of shared meals and worship. I had responsibility of chairing the conference, sorting the programme, preparing orders of service for worship, organizing rotas and giving thought to various exercises for discussion and writing.  All in all it was a very happy and purposeful few days. Our meeting took place in the Guesthouse of the Theodore Schneller School, which had all the facilities that we needed.
