Church away day

Church went on an away day today, to the Greenhouse Centre in Poole. We did a study in three parts on "What does it mean to follow Jesus?" (The Inward Journey), split into worship, study, and service.

I wasn't entirely sure what to expect, but it turned out to be quite interesting and very thought-provoking. I ended up with a pile of notes (taken on my phone because this is 2018) to reflect on later, but there were a couple of concepts that kept on cropping up. One concept in particular is to just pause and listen - "Be still and know", a phrase that I particularly like as it's the motto of Sussex University. Definitely worth making more time for just relaxing and listening instead of getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of modern life or endlessly refreshing Facebook (or the BBC's Brexit live feed) - perhaps then I won't look on the past year and wonder where all my free time vanished.
