Being at Bourne End in the morning, talking to Stewart, a missionary in Kenya and the eastern bit of Congo and him remembering my dad's name and asking how he can pray for him. I can't have seen stewart for about 3 years at least.

listening to a service of lessons and carols with my grandparents. it's Christmas now.



'it's Chelsea'

'...hi emily'

Then: how good it is to stand and talk and be with people who i've known since i was four. even tho when we went to the falcon we were the oldest people there by years.

'lets go to the 'lope'
'i spy a couple of heros'

'who's the old dude?'
'thats Adz dad....Dadz if you will'

'is there a doctor in the house? is there anyone with a decent degree in the house?'
'no...we're all wasting our lives in the antelope'

dancing to jimmy eat world and the libertines
failing not to get jealous of my friends playing semi-pro football

George over Dennis...brand loyalty
'bare children...get it?'
many hugs

being at home

songs for the cross centred life

The Baton



I LIKE conferences...i miss them when i am not there.

How seriously UCCF takes it's responsibility to the Bible, and students/Relays
Not being killed by an argos lorry
Jason Clarke
late nights with Drew, Sarah, David, Jason, Ollie and Catrin

'you're a wacko aren't you Ed?'
'i'm a Reformed charismatic...'
'yeh, wacko!'

'ha, you're late and so am i!'

not having enough pretty girls (context here, is key)
walks and talks
talking to Lisa being just like talking to Annie
Anna not being scared anymore
seeing so many Relays
hearing Mo plug Relay and thinking 'oo that sounds cool'

'our leader wants to kill babies...does that worry you?'

the look on Heather's face when i pushed her over, as if i was going to greet her any other way
Anna's carol sheet carnage
