Right now I'm sitting in Lani's lounge in London, trying to muster the energy that I'll need to get up at 3.30AM to go to Roma. Don't get me wrong, I can't WAIT to go, I just have very little energy after last week.
And so you ask...what happened last week???? And I answer...you should have been at St John's on Sunday, or actually any day last week and you would have seen it. When I decided to do the holiday club in about April, I didn't think it would be too hard...a few hours everyday, playing with kids and talking a bit about God. How wrong was I?? I ended up singing in the band, running around constantly after a HUGE group of 7/8 yr olds and generally not stopping to sit down from 8.30 to 1.30 every day. Don't get me wrong, I LOVED it, I just slightly underestimated the amount of work/effort/energy it would take.
I also completely underestimated the amount I would get out of it. I mean, for a kids holiday club, I think I grew a fair amount during the week. The thing I noticed most was in the Leader's Worship Sess on Friday when I was watching all the adults I'd got to know during the week and realised how much St John's has done for me since September. It kinda scared me when I stopped to think how different things might have been without it...
Which brings me full circle to where this blog started...without St John's, I wouldn't be sitting in Lani's lounge waiting to go to Rome with such an amazing friend. I wouldn't be getting baptised in September. I wouldn't be President of CT. In short, I wouldn't be what I now am. And I kinda like me.
