SO i'm a little tired. Meals without lots of clatter and bustle seem strange. Yes.. I'm at the ened of a week of work with 11-14 year olds, known as Ignite! And oh my- I had a ball. I honestly don't think I've been as alive for about two years! I love working with young people. They are savvy and honest, and up for it, and bold, and a bit silly, and, and, and.
I love working in a team- and we had a great one!
I love communicating- so two preaches and a seminar in six days was ace! (and told the whole Bible story in 14 minutes 22 seconds with props, and actions!)
I love reflecting God in creative ways.. which is why once again we spent two days setting up a thirty minute fun event for the teenagers! This time it was SNOW!!!! Oh my.. such such fun!!
So this was a bit of a risk. I've been dead jumpy in the last couple of days, so watching an M.Night Shyamalan film may not have been the wisest move! I need to say that it was Rubbish (with a capital R).. so so slow..
But in that annoying way that he does Shyamalan does just enough to make a movie that you can preach on. This one is about leadership.. I'll say no more..
I;m just off to Ignite (11-14's camp thing someone in teh mmiddle of England).. back next Fri!
Just a quick one.. My judesmith.me.uk address is out of action probably till September. So if you wanna email then it needs to be via the 24-7prayer address. Howevere a new (and most likely googlemail) address is on its way!
Its a mere seven days since the end of Tv's greatest show. So it is inevitable that this week has been spent in search of a suitable replacement.. And I can't find one. But I have found trawlermen! Each night at 7 I have been found sat urging success on 6 men in a small boat in the North Sea. Its all very odd (am a bit scared of the sea, think fish are ugly etc).. but I love it. AM even going to drive through teh rush hour to try and see the last one tonight!
