The day after the weekend before

in the Church Times article last week I’m quoted as saying, “You are never too old for Youth work ….. it just takes longer to recover!” I am the embodiment of that quote today, it was a FANTASTIC youth residential at Legge House but man am I tired.
I was there as a volunteer member of the team and chiefly in the role as Minibus Pilot (THE nicest minibus I have EVER driven and that’s saying something as my Minibus finding algorithm has yielded some nice machines in the past). Other than driving I also lead a session on ‘Story’ and spend a very happy chunk of Saturday afternoon hiding in a wood as part of a ‘Wide Game’ and distributing swords in exchange for certain pieces of information. As ever though it was just hanging out with the young people that was the best bit, it was a real privilege to spend time with them.
