I went to St John’s church this morning. I’m on a sort of church search, in the wake of leaving employment at the chaplaincy. I’ve got this plan to visit as many churches as I can that I haven’t already tried, to see what’s out there that I haven’t discovered yet. Last week I went to Orchard Baptist, which was fantastic. St John’s was ok, though I was a bit tired, so didn’t really get into it until right at the end! Next week I’ll be at Ellie’s church, then leading worship at the chaplaincy the week after. Not sure where I’ll end up after that, will have to see what else is on the list!
Ooh, I rang my brother this evening! Ok, that doesn’t sound too spectacular on its own, but he’s just gone to uni, and he’s only been there a day or so, so I thought I’d ring him to see how he was getting on. As it happens, he was on a pub crawl that the university had organised! Can’t quite imagine him on a pub crawl… I guess that’s just something I’ll have to accept sometime soon, that my little brother isn’t so little any more! I’m going to ring him again tomorrow when he’s not in a crowded bar. It’s still very scary to think that he’s all grown up now, paying rent and tuition fees, living on his own, making new friends, organising himself, getting himself from A to B without asking Mum for a lift!! I’m sure he’ll cope just fine, I’m just not sure how long it’ll take me to adjust to the change!
