The weekend that was: I’ve been off work since last Wednesday having a chance to do all those jobs that Hannah and I had been postponing. We particularly made great progress on a possible new kitchen – we think we’ve chosen the design and on Wednesday they’re coming to measure up and draw up some possible plans. I’ve also managed to get piles of paperwork spread around the house, but at least now they’re in some resemblance of order ready to be filed into our filing cabinets etc.
Sunday was a nice blend of church and work. In the morning one of our church members preached a great sermon on the topic of Euthanasia – very challenging, but very caring and thoughtful. I spent most of the afternoon doing final preparation for the holiday club this week at Carroty Wood. They’ve got 30 young teenagers coming to hang out with them, do lots of activities, and spend time thinking about Jesus. Sunday night was back into church again, the worship really reminded me of the songs we sang at Exeter CU which was nice, and it was great to see a few more young people back from holidays etc.
On my task list this week: Speaking at a holiday club this week at Carroty Wood – excited about being there each afternoon. Into last two weeks before camp so major pressure coming to make sure stuff is nearly all sorted – the devotions need some time, otherwise it’s all going all okay.
Procrastinating about: Prep for the Autumn.
Book I’m in the midst of: Starting Youth Work After Christendom (After Christendom) by Nigel & Jo Pimlott and trying to finish A Good Childhood: Searching for Values in a Competitive Age by Richard Layard and Judy Dunn.
Music that I’ve been working along to: Bluetree’s album is back on nice and loud.
How I’m feeling about this week: Excited and nervous about speaking at a holiday club this week, really need to finish prep for camp.
