Busy week... busy week... a deanery youth service held at St Wilf's today. I mention this because it fascinated me how doing MC has given us the confidence to use arty approaches in this very different service: after a short talk on 'Back to the Future' - God's plans for us as promised in Jeremiah 29:11 - we all came into the hall and enjoyed responding to the idea of God as someone who 'plans to prosper us' through prayers in time capsules, individual and group art projects.
It's always a problem that we lose touch with everyone over the summer so we fixed up a low-organisation event in the garden - campfire and toasting anything possible to affix to a stick.
Despite forgetting to write up a 16 page risk assessment beforehand, miraculously no-one got hurt. Not many turned up - three families plus us, but actually that was great because we actually had time to chat to everyone instead of being swamped.
No-one dead of food poisoning yet - always a plus.
