Pub Lab this Sunday at Wetherspoons at 7pm and the final one of the year! Exploring future plans esp a weekly prayer space on wednesday nights.
WWJD? (what would Jesus drink?)
Good week so far. really really enjoyed my time with Dad at the Bridge. Some excellent footie. terrific youth group session last night. Very inspiring stuff - thanks Chris! Those of you who know old George from St. Cat's please remember him in your prayers. I think he is finally beginning to feel his 95 years...

day off today. Going to London to see the Chelsea match with my Dad. so looking forward to it. in the midst of Christmas prep, meetings and services...in the midst of getting ready to take over from Sheila as the vicar (Priest-in-Charge) at the start of January...trying not to lose sight of Jesus. Loving that Tim Hughes song "Be my everything"......esp. that line "Christ in me the hope of glory".
After December 31 I will shut down this blog. It has served me well. I am working on a new website that will fit in with a new year and a new direction in ministry. The new website will have a blog, pics, short films and some other stuff. Will post the new address on here before Chrimble is over.

L and I popped into Toby's class this morning. They had prepared some questions for me about what I do and believe in etc. Great kids and fab questions. One of the questions was "Do you know the story of the Good Samaritan?" this led us onto talking about other stories in the bible. Right at the end of the session one lad came up to me and said "I think this story is in the Bible....its that one....you know....the one with the King and the goose"!! Couldn't work out which story he might be muddled up with or whether this was just a random thought that happened.
Went to see my bro this week. His album is out soon. Check out some of the songs on charlie

ever been to The Cartoon Blog by Dave Walker?
this one of a few you are allowed to re-use on a blog. Hoping Santa might bring me the book for Christmas.......
good time taking the LAB to the Christian Union at the Uni on Tuesday. Some guy was saying that Rob Bell (Mr Nooma)had been in Cardiff on Sunday and how good it had been. Does anyone know if he is speaking anywhere else in the UK soon?

nooma tonight at the lab was called 'bullhorn'. A very passionate plea by Rob Bell to love without an agenda. best sermon on evangelism/mission/witness I have heard for a long while.
really good to join with the Salvation Army at their cafe tonight - good crowd of over 50 people....lovely atmosphere.
its been a real ecumenical Sunday. Took the service and preached at Del's church (Methodist) this morning. what a good bunch.....

been thinking a lot about prayer. been mostly prompted by the offer to write the intro for a prayer resource called fusion. check out >http://fusiondata.blogspot.com/2006/11/
also had our first mini lab youth group meeting at St. Paul's last night for younger teens. Brilliant evening! thanks Chris! watched a dvd called "the upper room - mobilize your church to PRAY like never before." thinking we should have a week of continuous prayer for the youth of Newport in 2007 and also have a prayer room at St. Paul's.
Making time to pray can never be time wasted.
