Many of you know I’ve started a course so I might be supervisor for student ministers some day. So I was in Halifax for a week taking this rather intensive course. Over the week we had the opportunity to practice on each other. Which meant we had to be prepared for almost anything.
We were coached to try and focus on key things, like changes in energy, or key words, or even just trying to trust our instincts.
