The weekend that was:Friday was the usual Brigades and Amicus – I had more freedom and time to pop in some of our different groups. It’s great seeing the new year 7 and 10s settling into there new groups and producing some very different dynamics to what we had last year.
Saturday was a trip to London, Hannah’s grandad very generously treats his family to a theatre trip and dinner. This year we went to see Oliver which was a good show, and nice to see the story visualised. The food as usual was awesome – a big cold buffet, cavery and then a wonderful pear and almond tart.
Sunday was a manic day at church:
- I led our family service
- Co-ordinated young leaders training for 22 of our young people including providing dinner
- Did a big set up for our Sunday night youth work
- Preached at SNR
God is doing some great things in our youth work and I just keep being amazed at how he turns up.
On my task list this week: I’m sitting in some regional meetings this week, start of youth alpha, trying to re-schedule a few meetings, and starting work on our Youth Cafe at church.
Procrastinating about: Chasing people who I’ve emailed or rung but not had a reply from.
Book I’m in the midst of: Still reading The Complete Book of Discipleship by Bill Hull.
Music that I’ve been working along to: Listened to a bit of Paul van Dyk on spotify recently – some nice techno beats.
How I’m feeling about this week: Justy loving what God is doing, but feeling like we’re working very hard, hoping for a little slack this week.
