Back into it
We had a great time on the beach, chatting to people and living life.
It was a great opportunity to hang out with a bunch of people who are committed to God and to the people around them.
We had some great chats, both amongst ourselves and with those around us. (sweatshops in Bangladesh anyone?)
The challenge now comes in converting the lifestyle of beach mission, living in community and sharing life with those around you, into my 'rest of the year' lifestyle.
The challenge is to live my life intentionally.
I am really enjoying the book "Spiritual Disciplines", it is a great challenge, but also a helpful resource. It gives examples of how to practice each of the disciplines, which is quite helpful for people who have never tried these things before. I didn't get it finished at beach mission (it is not something you can rush through) but I am keeping at it.
On Monday I went to my first pre-season training for my new football career. The team seems really nice, and they encouraged me lots, even though I was pretty ordinary. It is back to the park to practice my ball skills for the rest of the week before our next training run on monday.
Our mixed netball also starts next monday, so I am going to be very tired by the end of monday night.
Hopefully all my blog readers haven't dropped off over January.
Please come back, I don't want to have to beg.
so you're playing soccer this year? that's cool, don't forget to tell me about the last "football" game in feb, when is it again? i'd like to go.
go mixed netball!!
