We Are The Plan

Last Saturday’s Just Generation event inspired and challenged me. Andy Freeman shared some thoughts, along with a few interesting workshops in the afternoon, and a delicious lunch provided by the Elephant Juice Soup Company – if you get a chance you MUST try their haggis & sweet potato soup, I promise you that you will not regret it!

Some thoughts and reflections…

God’s big idea is us. We are the plan.

God never moves backwards, he works with what we’ve made.

Church as foretaste of heaven – could you walk in a say ‘this is what heaven’s like’?

Laugh first an then work out the theology.

Benedictine Rule – treat everyone who comes into our home like Jesus.

Maybe our task is to communicate to the poor, the peacemakers, etc that they are blessed?

Just Generation

For the last few years, a bunch of development agencies have been running an event called Just Generation. And every year, I somehow miss it… out of the country, or working, or something else…. not this year!

Don’t think you can’t change the world!

Just Generation brings together a generation hungry to see a more just world. Come along for workshops, worship and interactive activities exploring God’s heart for justice and how we can live justly in the 21st century.

The theme for this year’s gathering is Community and we’re very excited that our main speaker will be Andy Freeman. Andy was part of the team that pioneered 24-7 Prayer’s first Boiler Room community &… co-authored Punk Monk. He is now a trainee Pioneer Ordinand with the Church of England and is working with others in the south to support Pioneers and Fresh Expressions in the region. Andy is also involved in Just 247 with the 24-7 Prayer movement and currently working on prayer and writing projects around Child Health issues.

Book now, and I’ll see you there!
