6 down

I just finished my draft of chapter 6 on introverted community and relationships. It seems that my writing pace is slowing down with each successive chapter! I like this chapter though, in spite of the challenges it presented. I talk about the necessity of community but also the very extroverted expectations churches have for community involvement. I also talk in depth about gifts that introverts bring to others and some practical suggestions for participating in community. I end with two stories of introverts succeeding in community.

I'm on "vacation" for the next week, and I will be using it to start the next chapter on introverted leadership. I have an interview with an introverted pastor on Monday, as well as a meeting with a professor of leadership at Fuller Seminary.

My deadline of July 31 seems a lot closer than it once did...
