the last few days

Well I suppose I ought to say something as it has been a couple of days since I last posted here.

The last few days have been a mixed bag really. Not sure if I've done that much, but I still seem to have been keeping myself busy...

We had an encouraging meeting on Wednesday night about the youth club we're looking to set up. At least, I think it was encouraging. The more I dwell on it the more I wonder. But perhaps that's the problem with thinking about things too much.

I was down in Birmingham for uni. on Tuesday, and althougth it confused my little head considerably I did enjoy it. The module I'm doing this term is called "Rethinking Christianity in Western Europe". Over the last couple of weeks we've been looking at some stuff which was published in the sixties, but has so much relevance to today's situation. Some of it, it appears, was kinda squashed by various influential mission agencies, because essentially people were questioning the value of said mission agencies, suggesting the need to widen our view of what is mission, and consider exactly whose mission it is anyway.

I think I'm gonna write my essay on this stuff, considering the way in which current 'pop-theologians' (not my own term, but I do like it) use, or rather don't use, some of this stuff which was published back then.
