The weekend that was: Friday was an awesome night, some of the young people from my previous church came to run som dance workshops and share their testimony to the 11-14 year old girls I presently work with. It was great catching up with the young people from Essex, and reflecting on how much they’ve grown and developed in the last 5 years.
Saturday was a day of jobs around the home, listening to Fighting Talk, and going to friends for a great big dinner.
Sunday I went to Kings Hill Christian Fellowship in the morning to help them think through how they grow and develop their youth work. It was great see the huge potential they have. The afternoon was church meeting, which merged into an evening of church and lots of pastorals.
On my task list this week: lots of meetings, pastoral 1-to-1s, hoping to release publicity on a number of events – summer camp, ministry apprentices, and the Christmas party, and I’m off to Youthwork the conference at the end of the week which I’m really looking forward to.
Procrastinating about: not much, this week is fairly full on but I’m sure there’s something I’m not pushing as hard as I should.
Book I’m in the midst of: I started reading Surprised by the Voice of God by Jack Deere over the weekend.
Music that I’ve been working along to: I’ve really been enjoying Bluetree recently.
How I’m feeling about this week: Hopeful on the launch of some big projects – youth camp, Christmas party, Ministry Apprentices and so on.
