I spent the weekend down at State Youth Games with my eldest daughter Mikaela and her friend Emma.
I wrote a full story with pictures on it all here, if you are interested.
I guess I felt the outreach/church service hit what I would call, good middle ground. It did not feel showy or hyped, and it wasn’t out there too creative in which no one connects. A local band lead us with a real genuine sense of worship, the preacher, whilst not being my style, was spot on for the moment, seemed to connect with young people and made a sensitive altar call in which about 40 responded for various reasons.
They say you can’t please all of the people all of the time, I know there will always be someone (mostly me!!) having a complain about something on a night like this, but I think we managed to pull it off this year…well Pete and I agree, so for that reason alone I would say it was tops!
I will let you judge for yourself… hmmm
