Welcome to 2019!

Happy new year!

I hope that you had an enjoyable Christmas season and that the new year has gotten off to a good start for you.

Nicole and I have been living back in Melbourne since late May 2018. We thoroughly enjoyed our 18 months living in the Sunshine Coast but decided to come back to be near our family, especially my ageing parents. Rene Conner, my step mum, passed away on 4th October last year at age 89. She lived a good and full life. My dad, Kevin Conner, turns 92 in a few weeks time and has been living in an aged care home for over a year now where he is well looked after and where friends and family can visit him regularly.

It’s hard to believe that it has almost been two years since I finished up as Senior Minister of CityLife Church. This change was a big one for me and a huge step into the great unknown. As difficult as transitions and liminal spaces can be, I can attest that endings make way for new beginnings. I am thoroughly enjoying my new life and the vocational contributions I am now making in coaching, training, speaking, and writing.

Last year, I wrote three new books: Money Talks, How to Avoid Burnout, and The Spiritual Journey.

I have been encouraged by the feedback I have already received about how helpful these resources have been to so many people.

If you haven’t visited my web site for a while, let me remind you about these pages:

  1. My 2019 speaking schedule (updated regularly).
  2. Videos of messages I have given, including everything I spoke on at Bayside Church last year where I am part of the teaching team with Pastor Rob Buckingham.

Also, here are my most recent BLOG posts:

If you want to make the most out of this year, by setting some clear goals that reflect what has value and meaning to you, then I highly recommend “Your Best Year Ever” by Michael Hyatt.

Finally, may 2019 be full of memorable moments, meaningful contribution, and dreams fulfilled. Remember to live simply, laugh often, and love deeply.
