Young adults was very interesting. Jess H led it by running through a heap of… I guess you might call them maxims/principles re: the Christian life. Dualism > Holiness, Self Governed > Spirit Governed…
I can’t say I fully agreed with everything shared (whether that’s just due to insufficient thrashing of each out – there was a lot to cover) and my ‘filter’ was running full steam with many ‘Yes, but’s’. She did however do a very good job with what she had. I have much to think about and more to explore in depth. Three big cheers for this, I love it when I get something to take away.
Macca’s afterwards. The typical crew hung around later, Geoff, Tim O, Laura, Analise and myself. After the quiz and other random moments that had me laughing pretty hard (
and I wont explain or it’d embarass Tim and make me look like an immature kid for laughing at fart related, bench seat vibration things).
Conversation took a smooth turn. Tim, Geoff, I and Laura (a bit) had a beautifully, intense, a little firey/confronting, deep conversation around erm… the ways of communicating things, open dialogue, love God – love your neighbor, community (wow too much was covered… I can’t even remember it all!). The kind of brilliant passionate conversation/debate/challenge that in participating in, makes me feel utterly alive.
If there’s one thing that gets me really excited and feeling like an evening has been spent in absolute best way possible is to have a conversation of that sort.
Yeah, I really can’t do the time justice.
