Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things...

Tim Keller identifying and saying out loud some of the internal feelings and frustrations i have had about the evangelical scene here and how everyone in the 'right' circle fits a certain class model, regarding the 'right' educational background, the 'right' upbringing and even the 'right' personality and style of preaching, who you know etc that though i can infiltrate to some extent some of the time, i feel alienated and unwelcome and uncomfortable in much of the time. Pleased He encouraged the major Evangelical leaders in the UK to see that and discuss it.

Bible club going well

Buying a pretty new handbag! Ahhhh the simple feminine pleasures

A very tasty coffee - the fact that God in His grace gives us such intense taste buds and appreciation of delicious things.

The fact that God has made us so intellectually able yet also so able to completely zone out as we walk somewhere on autopilot, drifting into possible nothingness, as i can't recall what i actually was thinking about as i zoned out while walking to Hampstead!

Teaching Phillippians 1:12-30 at one school CU of Pauls passion and love for Jesus Christ being such that to live is Christ to die is gain. Girl asks: " What so he was a real person?" - not sure if she meant Christ or Paul but getting to say YES! to her and showing her Christianity is real and true in time, space and history - not a cleverly invented story or myth! But half an hour really barely scratches the surface!

Fun in the garden with the trampoline and dodgeball at our American Family's home. Their love and generosity as co-workers and 'family' in the Gospel.

The steak they bbq'd us - mmmmmmm
