Soul Survivor Day 5 : ‘Fancy Dress and BBQ’

13 August 2011

The last full day of Soul Survivor is here!!

As I type, I’m surrounded by teenagers making angel wings and putting on Banana Man costumes, yes it is fancy dress night and the theme is Disney/cartoon characters! Photos to follow!! Our wonderful cooks are setting up the the BBQ for tonights feast, and am glad to say the sun appears to be holding out for it too. Meanwhile the others have challenged the group next to us to a volleyball tournament!

Last night the speaker Danielle Strickland again challenged us to shout STOP to injustice and death of all kinds in the world. This morning’s communion service followed the theme as we thought about community, what is happening in our own country and the importance, indeed the vital role, that the church plays in this. As Mike Pilavachi talked about church he suggested that being a Christian without getting stuck into local church is not only very difficult, but somewhat selfish.

Unsurprisingly, many of the Young People headed off to seminars on ‘Dating Dilemmas’ with Romance Academy’s director Rachel Gardner, with others going to ask the worship leaders any questions. As the last evening draws upon us, before we think about packing up, I am very aware that some of the Young People leave with big questions, but hopefully all are more aware of the reality of God and His love and power in their lives.

It has been a great time in every sense, and you can look forward to Alex’s blog for a Young Person’s perspective when we are back in Leeds and all the camping gear has been dealt with!!
