I thought seeing as our other thread has gone somewhere into the oblivion that is old MN pages, I would start us up again anew for a new term. This is a place for those who are Christians (and anyone who's not, we're not an exclusive little club) to chat about life, theology, church, any other stuff and of course Graham Kendrick, as nickel would not forgive me if I forgot to mention him
So all welcome, old and new, it would be fun to chat and chew over anything that comes to mind. Lurkers say hello!
Anyone got a nice juicy topic to get the ball rolling then? Or if not come say hi anyway and tell us how you are doing.
Maybe you should try it out Tuo, you might love it - no GK in sight, but possibly too much Redman - can totally understand though - a day conference of cathedral worship would not be my thing - although I'd love the silence and feel of it I think
I think I am more the other way inclined though. Remember I am the person who went to a 'Quiet Day' and didn't find it quiet enough!
I'm not actually in Harrogate, sadly, as it's lovely (far lovelier than where I actually am!) but I'm close enough to get there easily and kind of on your way there. But I do understand how full these days are. Some other time... or maybe I'll come and sing SJS a tad TOO loudly at the Clappy Choruses meetup... (I won't, I won't, I promise... I'm tone-deaf!). Let me know if you are 'oop north' again!
Had to laugh this afternoon - dd came out of school singing "Shine Jesus Shine" - they had sung it in assembly this morning and she couldn't remember all the words so we sang it together as we walked along the road - takes me back to my youth...
Is it still snowing in the UK then? You've got more snow than us which is very unusual for this time of year, but we've got 30cm forecast for Friday so I'm not feeling too left out!
I've only been to Greenbelt once when we were at college in Gloucester. We just went for the day and went home to sleep <not hardcore enough>. It was good but we were a bit frustated that there seemed to be a lot of things you had to sign up for and since we were only there on the Saturday and Sunday daytime we'd missed the oportunity. Also I think I was pregnant with DS and we must have had DD1 with us although I have no recollection of that
Ooh - I'd forgotten about Fat and Frantic - I had a couple of their albums and saw them live at Greenbelt and in Cambridge once I think. I only went to Greenbelt twice as a teenager - in 1988 and 1990 I think. This is how I waste so much time on the internet - I can see that I'm going to be watching Fat and Frantic on you tube half the afternoon
I was there the year Cliff went! It was their 10th anniversary, it was 84! But I might have been back later too, I went about twice in my teens, maybe only once in my twenties, twice in my thirties and so far once in my 40s.
