New Look, New Year
Friday, March 02, 2007
Hey all. I am aware that I have been a little absent lately. I've been thinking about the time I spent last year on Blogging and the stuff I wrote and whether it was all worth it because there are tons of people out there writing great stuff.
I think that I can make this Blog intentional though (I love that word.) I have recently had a few ideas about some projects that I think could be helpful this year and I'd love to use this blog to promote and plan them. Watch this space.
I went to India and it was awesome. I have left it too long to spend too much time reflecting on it. You can hear some reflections on episode 42 of the Poddy. I'll stick in a piccy here though.
The Taj Mahal was incredible. It seems like a touristy thing to say, but I really was blown away.
Since being in India I have started work at Pacific Hills Christian School. It's great fun. I have a year one class who provide me with endless stories to take home to Renae.
Formal ministry-wise I'm not leading a bible study this year, which is nice to free up my time a bit. I'm not leading a year group at youth anymore either but I do still catch up with the 'Few Good Men' from last
year. They have gone all over but most of them are still involved in ministry at our church so I will have the opportunity to help them out where I can. I am heading up the 'gladness' arm of CCEC youth now. which just means I sing and try to get everyone else to sing too.
At night church there is a much bigger team this year which means more organising, more catching up, and more singers. It's an exciting year with new stuff happening and like I said, the possibility of two great projects that you will hear about later.
all in all it looks to be a great year, and a different year to last year. plus with a whole new style to the blog, I can't go wrong.
I thought I'd let you know what I'm listening to at the moment...
- Something Old: Queens of the Stone Age - Lullabies to Parylize
- Something New: Sovereign Grace - Valley of Vision (the newest cd I own)
- Something Borrowed: Matt Redman - Facedown
- Something Blue: Chris Whitley - Dirt Floor
