Back in London!
Had a productive day planning some mission initiatives for the London Baptist Association, stuff to train young people. More when the homework is done!

There was a pastor from Zimbabwe staying in the house we were meeting in, and it was good to get some inside perspectives on the situation there. It was also good to disucss youth culture and globalisation, and the impact that has on ministry in post-colonial Africa. This pastor seemed to be describing a "glo-cal" approach that takes seriously the influence of Western media and pop culture (in the cities at leats) and yet is open to local culture and expressions. He pastors a church in the city which sings Vineyard/Redman etc., but planted a rurual church that is much more indigenous in flavour.
