A great weekend was had by all (at least I think all, obviously I can only really speak for myself!) at Yellow Braces, a diocesan run youth retreat. My job was speaker, scary the first time I have had to prepare more than one talk in advance of something and then deliver them in short space of time, but I loved it also got to use my new toy for the first time!
(There was supposed to be a picture here that is hosted on Flicker (Ive finally uploaded some pictures (3 so far) after having an account for the last few months!) but I could not get it to display, anyone know anything about linking to pictures on flicker please let me know whats gone wrong. You can see the three pictures here.)
Update huge thank you to Easyrew from Reluctant Souls for helping solve this one!
The weekend went really well, worship was Fantastic, the talks were
. (fill in the blank if you were there) the whole experience and feel of the thing was exciting, God was there doing his stuff and he was really felt by many. Please pray for the 60 or so young people that as they go back to everyday life the experience of the weekend will still be working in their lives.
