Off to Hong Kong this week with this great crew from George Fox Seminary. A learning journey and exposure to one of the great cities of the world – with all its complexity, gifts and challenges.
I’ll be presenting the first chapter of “Broken Futures” there and when I get back I will likely post the entire, un-abbreviated chapter here. I’ve had a few people read the first three chapters (still in draft) and so far the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. It’s been a fun project that has been on the back burner all summer long.
Speaking of which – an amazing summer. Great weather which is extending into the fall. Three months of learning in wiring, plumbing, framing and heating and general carpentry. Most problems are eventually solved – sometimes with creative solutions, sometimes with outside help. The house has taken shape around some new bones; bone grafts in other parts. It helps to be building on a solid foundation. Yes, easy to collect metaphors in a process like this. One of those metaphors makes it into the introduction to “Broken Futures.”
