Wow, the past few days have been amazing, I've learnt and heard so much.... in fact so much that I haven't even had time to think it all through just yet. However we have been given CDs with the audio recordings from all the maina sessions and I've made loads and loads of notes form Summer School, so I'll spend some time over the next few weeks thinking what's next in the youth ministry and what needs to be changed and developed. So you should expect some update on that gradually.
Mind you one little thing I learnt that is totally irrelevant to youth ministry or anything we were learning about is that I seem to write much neater with a fine biro as opposed to a medium one..... I'd always preferred medium because they write much smoother but seeing as I ended up with a fine pen this weekend I rather like them now because I can actually read what I've written! Anyway I'll stop talking nonsense now......
Quick note about the teaching though: Duffy Robbins, Chap Clark and Craig Mawhinney were incredible, they spoke with such clairty and knowledge in their subjects and made it so easy to listen for hours. Thanks guys!
I've also had a great chance to catch up with old friends, meet some new ones and mend some friendships that had broken down a little. So the trip was a success in that respect also. I did miss Rob and wee Stewie though so I'm also glad to be home again and spending some time with them.
Well shall update soon.
