The vibe was awesome and not dampened by the torrential rain. Harry's poetic heart has the rhythm of rap and the literature of the classics such a creative young man. The people who occupy the Greenbelt sojourn have a divine mandate to be in the business of celebrating what truly makes humanity the best expression of the creative nature of life opposing the needless destruction that dominates our world and societies. We are all cut out by the creators hand and placed in the variety of places of our business to be the best expressions of love, grace, mercy, peace, common unity and transformation we can be in the year ahead as each day toward the celebration of new beginning next year. By the grace of God see you before and there.

Not creeping - but your session was a highlight for me. Much truth spoken! Challenged me to think about how we as an emerging smc connect with the existing traditions - and much more. Don't forget to connect us with the guy from Rugby (stick something on the blog link or via email).

Plus - I missed Harry's session due to crappy rain and bedding down my little girl for the night, so to hear a couple of his poems was a treat. Thanks for including them. I know you're proud - rightly so. Have me an idea for an RE scheme of work focusing on how people of faith use art I communicate their beliefs - focusing of contemporary expressions rather than the old stuff. Harry and Mohammed Ali (the street artist) at Greenbelt inspired this new teacher!

So - thanks, as ever. We need to get you down to Exeter some time soon!


Harry Baker's dad...love it! Haha!

the gift of not fitting in - so encouraging!!
