august is always holiday season for me so the blog reflects that by being pretty inactive but today i'll gradually kick back into action and that includes getting the blog going again. big chill, family holiday in scotland and greenbelt are now all over. photos from scotland will be appearing shortly but (shock horror!) i didn't take a camera to greenbelt as i find i am doing so many things i just can't give taking photos the attention it deserves.
greenbelt was wonderful as ever - it's such a great festival, a hopeful sign on the church map. i didn't actually get to much but the proost events were a real highlight and i must confess i loved inflicting my taste in tunes on people in the wine bar for two and half hours on sunday night!
speaking of festivals here is a movie i made of sky lanterns being let off at the big chill festival - if you are at the start of the year what are your dreams, hopes, prayers? i'll say more about this in a couple of weeks when it has fully landed but it is a bit of a new season for me at cms with some team changes and a shift of focus to more working with training pioneer mission leaders which i am really looking forward to.
