Anglican Diocese of Peru

This week we have been blessed this week at Nashotah with a visit from The Rt. Rev'd H. William Godfrey from the Diocese of Peru. It is so fascinating and inspiring to hear from people who work on the front lines of world mission. Yesterday he was telling us about his church planting model, "The Spider." He plants 3-4 bigger, nicer church buildings in a city, and from there he sends out priests and catechists to plant 4-5 more satellite churches.

It is amazing how hungry the people in his diocese are for the Gospel. He is always looking for more workers to help out in the vineyard, so if you are looking for a place to go he might be able to find something for you to do!

One thing that I learned about CPE this summer is that they love to talk about the Enneagram personality profile. Unfortunately, we did not really have time to work with this in my group this summer, so we mostly just alluded to it. Recently, however, I stumbled across a post on my friend Dixon Kinser's blog which brought the enneagram back to my attention.

This is something that many people have been using in spiritual direction, CPE, the office, and a myriad of other places. I am only just starting to look into it, so I may post more in the future. For now I will just leave you with the fact that I tested as a:

For those of you who haven't heard the news, I married Carrie Estridge (now Klukas) on August 20th. All that I can say is that married life is great. I love my wife, and I am very much looking forward to spending the rest of my life with her.

Following the wedding, we decided to fly down to the Domincan Rebublic for a week of all inclusive fun. Aside from some minor dietary issues, we had a great time relaxing in the sun (Carrie) and shade (me).

To all of my family and groomsmen I would like to extend a big thankyou for all of your help and support through this whole wedding/engagement process. It was really something to stand at the front of that church with my new wife and see all of these people supporting us. It was one of the most moving experiences of my whole life.

We will soon post a link to the photographers pictures so that you can see them.
