Way back in 2006 the Uniting Church in Australia sent me, Avril Hannah-Jones, to the World Council of Churches’ Ecumenical Institute at the Chateau de Bossey on the shore of Lake Geneva, Switzerland. They promised it would change my life. It did. My adventures there are blogged here.
When I came home in 2007 the Uniting Church placed me in the Macedon Ranges, where I was minister to the congregations at Lancefield, Mount Macedon, Riddells Creek, and Romsey. If you’ve seen either the Vicar of Dibley or Rev. you’ll have some idea of what my life there was like. Most of the time I absolutely loved it. My blog of that time is here.
