Creativity and evangelism

I love teaching. My relationship with teaching hasn’t always been quite so amorous. I used to teach a bit like an information spewing machine which was both exhausting for me and my listeners!

It's been a busy 4 days lecturing and as co-principle I have the joy of hosting too. I can't think of a more fulfilling role and job to have.
