in the end, those notes were not worth remembering)

Staff conference notes 3
The first week of the year, we had our annual staff conference for YWAM Norway here at Grimerud.
Over three-hundred of us gathered here to spend some time together, listen to national and international speakers. I can get quite some sketching (and doodling) done during these big gatherings.
On the top picture, you can see that I have pencilled different facial expressions of one same character. Those are sketched for an illustrated bible.
There exist more than enough of illustrated children´s bibles already. And making another one (one with my name on it) is unlikely going to do the trick. I want to do something else.
Read the bible wellI want families and children to read the bible for how it was meant to be read. The books of the bible come in different kinds of genres: history, poetry, letters, laws, etc. You can´t read the bible as you do a picture-book or a novel. And these different books were written a long time ago, to people in a very different cultures. I want them to read the bible well. That is going to be my long term plan.
In the officeThe reason I, again, don´t have a lot of nice illustrations to show you, is that I have been very busy taking notes of the seminars, and figuring out how to apply them in the year to come.
While we are still figuring out a couple of things about the YWAM magazine, I will have time to finish off some of last year´s projects: An english translation of our Norwegain DTS-magazine, and the translation of the booklets with the foundational values of YWAM into three more languages.
