Not a place in Kent, but what is happening at the Olympic site today. The facilities move from the hands of the builders into the hands of those who are putting on the Olympic Games.
I first came across this term when Ann worked at Tameside Hospital. This process, at the end of a shift, of ensuring the next team of nurses know all they need to know to continue the care seamlessly, I’d never heard of before. I was very impressed. Really eye-opening.
Being listened to by someone who wants to continue the care you have been providing enables you to effectively release that ‘love’ to someone you know will continue it. You can then actually finish your shift, your work, and leave.
I hope there is that sort of effective handover at the Olympic Park today.
‘Cast all your care upon Him, for he cares for you’ is an invitation for us do exactly that with our daily lives. It is the on-going discipline we are asked to practise that reflects the fact that our lives are permanently ‘handed over’ to God through our trust in Jesus as our sole Rescuer (Saviour).
And he is faithful to do it. That’s our on-going experience and common life.
