Ah, my poor neglected blog. What with a new term, a load of stuff going on at church, starting college and just generally trying to keep a lid on life, I have sadly neglected my blog, and that's sad because I have so much stuff I want to write about. I'm learning some amazing stuff at college - who'd have thought I, yes I, would find liturgy so interesting...? what is going on there...? Well you know they say the Lord works in mysterious ways... (or was that U2...).
So a quick update before I plan some highly theological posts (or not)
// Had another study weekend away - which was AWE-SUM. Had an amazing guy come and teach us about Mission which is one of my favourite subjects anyway, and he was so inspiring, so knowledgable and so wise, it was great. Not so great is still the 'leaving the family for the weekend' thing which I'm not sure I'll get used to, but that's probably a good thing in a funny kind of way.
// Also just loving college generally and it's funny because it's not at all what I thought it would be, in fact it's far better and I'm just getting so inspired...
// Preaching this Sunday - cannot wait - love doing this - and not in a 'hey look at me' kind of way, because frankly I have no idea why people would want to hear what I have to say, but you know, I just really enjoy it, I love saying 'hey God, what do you want me to share this time' and seeing what he does. Also launching a new teaching series this Sunday, which I have put together which is also a bit of a trip, I mean, seriously my amazing boss has trusted me to put this together and let me run with it. I have never been in a job like that, or had a boss like it. So no pressure there then... ;) Seriously though, really excited about what God is going to do with it all, really feels such a good place for our church to be at the mo.
// Dyed my hair a different shade..
// Entered this blog competition... so go check it out, some great entries to read...
// Just feeling like I'm right where God wants me. It's funny because I've been wavering over that for a while, but starting college, my job, one of my kids being at a different school, it's just, well it's just right. It's a really nice, peaceful feeling, like God has been manouvering all these pieces into place and now they're going to sit there for a while (hmm, famous last words of course)
// Oh and also, so excited we're taking the kids to Eurodisney in a few weeks. woop!
So that's where I'm at...
