I attended a local event called NetCasting.

NetCasting is all about finding better ways to minister to our communities through the local member shurches.  The title comes from John 21:6, where the risen LORD calls out to the disciples who had gone back to fishing, asking if they had caught anything.  When they reply they hadn’t, he tells them to “cast on the other side.”  When they do so, their nets are filled to overflowing!

The organizers explained that the evening was not a seminar, not a teaching event.  It was a networking event, a place to share ideas, a way to find opportunities to work together cooperatively.  It is a group to help us help one another, to improve our ministries by holding the nets together.

Some of the notes of what happened are posted at http://netcastpba.wordpress.com/.  For me, it was a great session.
