But anyway, this year's resolution is holding fast and I'm actually glad that I'm going to church again and getting involved with the church community. It's only taken me, what, 9 years to properly settle in Fareham! Ironically this has happened about the same time as a few work opportunities appeared further afield, one or two I'd have jumped at a year ago but today I'm looking at and thinking that I actually want to stay in this area. This has slightly scuppered the "masters/PhD at Sussex" plan as commuting from here to Falmer is not ideal, although not impossible (and moving a short distance along the coast is not out of the question...).
Speaking of university, one thing that caught my ear at today's service was one of the songs we sung: a variant of God is our Strength and Refuge. It sounded rather familiar, but I couldn't quite place it until the last verse with "Be still and know your creator" - "Be still and know" is Sussex University's motto, and is taken from Psalm 46. There you do, that's today's random trivia!
