Day 55-58 29th Sept – 2nd Oct
Enjoying some days back home, regrouping before more travelling, studying and no doubt more adventures! I have communed quite a lot with all things domestic and with the washing, and it has been good to resume the role of cat servant to Ronni and Jimmy. (On that front I am very grateful to Rhiannon from South Nutfield Pet sitting who took care of them while I was in Wales).
This Sunday morning, I worshipped at Emmanuel Church in South Croydon and it was good and very helpful to hear the lovely Peter Graystone preach on one of the my favourite passages from Ephesians (2:11-22) (Peter looks after the “Growing in faith and life course” amongst other things for Southwark Diocese, and I tutor on that course (and helped in its inception/design). The worship had a deep sense of God’s Spirit, and I particularly enjoyed singing 10,000 reasons, and King of Kings, Majesty – which seems to always speak profoundly to my heart. Here is Jarrod Cooper talking about it before playing it on Songs of Praise.
Ephesians 2: 22 And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit. New International Version – UK (NIVUK)
Meanwhile I thought you might enjoy my collection of “dragon of the day’ from my welsh adventures. I was sending them to a friend of mine as I encountered them on my travels. Here’s the whole selection… Not sure why so many of them were outside static caravan parks!
