A week on from my last post and a lot has happened. West Ham have been robbed of a win on Sunday against Man City by a terrible offside decision that gifted the City a goal. Tottenham have knocked Arsenal out of the cup. I have played badminton 4 times and have had varying degrees of success which includes no longer being reigning champ as mentioned last time. Barbie and I have also been back to the old home town of Dartford to celebrate the birthday of the nearest thing I have to a brother, my cousin Terry - top boy and top night!
The highlight of the past week has to be Sunday. The vision day for Reading Family Church. A busy day that saw us having lunch with Duke, Sitho and Miranda; watching the football at the Mdlalose's and then coming to the church office for the members meeting.
I felt a real sense of togetherness as Sean painted a glorious picture of the church that God intended in the morning. Many of the 193 that were there on the morning stepping out and saying they want to be part of what God is doing here in Reading through his church. Then the turn out for the evening meeting including a few students!!! Man it is so good to be a member of this church! Church rocks!
I love hearing the stuff about the church because it helps me see that there is so much more to life than West Ham, Badminton and my everyday disappointments. The Lord has made me and called me to be part of his Kingdom and to serve that Kingdom and give to that Kingdom with my life and all I have. I am part of God displaying his wisdom to the world and beyond. Thank you Lord for such a privilege!
What about this week - lots to do, preach to prepare, child protection seminars to lead, marriage preparation course to go through with a great couple: and at the centre of all of those things - JESUS.
Hopefully I shall be able to write again at some point in the next few days, I quite enjoy just thinking through things and getting it down.
