    Reflections in the bigger room
    Well you're in your little room
    and you're working on something good
    but if it's really good
    you're gonna need a bigger room

    and when you're in the bigger room
    you might not know what to do
    you might have to think of
    how you got started in your little room

    ... The White Stripes sing it; it fits where IÕm at in life and time today. I shan't go on again about Greenbelt; but it is perhaps the place I got started in my little room. And as the demands and challenges of full-time ministry surround and confound me, leave me not drowning but waving an armband in the deep end, it does feel like being in the bigger room, not knowing what to do.

    So this coming weekend I return to the place that started me off and where I know I will be able to reflect on how I got started in my little room. Next week, revisiting Cambridge, where I trained, for the first time since, may help too. Should be a refreshing, energising time. Thanks, White Stripes.
