VentureFX at ECG
VentureFX presence at ECG made a valuable contribution to the event. Simon was busy all week and did a great job, together with Anthony Clowes, of hosting the nightly debate on various issues. Ian was helping to staff the Methodist and VentureFX stand and had a number of worthwhile conversations. We hope that next year the group of VentureFX pioneers will be able to play quite a significant role at the event. One of the most memorable moments was the response to Martyn Atkins' sermon in the Theatre, when many people came forward to acknowledge that they shared a 'divine disquiet' about church and the need for church to be changed and renewed for mission. Elaine Lindridge lead us in repeating the prayer of the Cuban church, 'Lord, prepare us for death or renew us!' Challenging words to pray, but it could be a transformational prayer if we mean it.
