During our sabbatical we're not laying everything down completely.
We're continuing with the English Service and with follow-up / accompaniment of folk on a limited scale.
However we do need to have a bit of resistance.
For example, we helped out with getting the Maison de la Bible bookshop ready after it's refurbishment. But the bookshop could do with more volunteers. Pat does a day a week at present, and may increase that. Should I take that on, too ?
Also a friend is very occupied with feeding homeless people in central ordeal. He's desperate to find more help. Should I get involved ?
To both of these we've decided to say no. The first because I can't take on something more at present. The second for that reason and because it's not at all our area of service.
