I love Autumn Soul


I'm sitting at the desk in the Edgehill Library, finishing off some preparation for the weekend - in thirty minutes' time, Kathryn will collect me and we'll go to sunny (?!) Bangor for Autumn Soul.

It's the tenth AS, and for the first nine the band that has become Soul Purpose led worship. Last year we began the handover to the next generation, and this year we're playing one session as a 'farewell'. I had to retire from the AS Organising Group (I was the longest serving member) because of Edgehill. I'm no longer a 'core' youth leader in my church (because of Edgehill).

I could have spent this weekend relaxing and watching the West Wing.

But I love Autumn Soul.

God does cool things at it. Young people come expecting to meet with Him and He meets their expectations, in fact exceeds them. Some of my most memorable worship moments have happened at Autumn Soul. So this year, I'm going to Bangor to pray. I know I'm only a few weeks into blogging, and let's face it most blogs don't get read by many people, but if you're reading this now, will you pray with me for Autumn Soul? Thanks.

Aargh! Greek!

Hmm, yes well. The first two weeks' of 'Introduction to Hellenistic Greek' (in other words, the original language of the New Testament) seemed to go ok. I did Latin GCSE and this is taught in a similar way. All seemed well.

Until I realised I was back to learning Vocab!!!

Thankfully, as you can see from the links on the right, I've discovered a Greek Vocab Test that's connected to our text book. So now at least when I'm tempted to abandon study and surf instead I can do something productive!

This is just one of a number of pretty sunsets we saw when on holiday in France in September.
Another great photo from Ross & Kathryn!

Thought I'd put up a wee picture of Edgehill, where I'll be based for the next three years. There's a link to the College website on the right. 'Tis a pretty place to be!

First post

Well hello! This is my first post and I'm not sure what exactly I'll do with my Random Moos. But this will do as a test.

Until we meet again...
