1. Triple-Mike. Thursday & Friday with Mike on Trinity. Saturday at Transformission. Mike is 'my theology advisor' !
2. Wisdom dancing at creation. A real highlight at new staff training this week - Tim Rudge on being human (with evident help from CCEF). The changes might be entirely in me, but it feels like UCCF has got a breath of fresh air over the last few years from things like Tim on Humanity, Mike on Trinity, Clarke on Scripture and the Cunningham drive for persuasive evangelism. Big-up the senior leadership guys.
3. This is the sound of inevitability. Watched with friends.
4. Running in rural Oxfordshire. 7am each morning!
5. Tasty food and 2 Timothy with the RUCU. More like 8 days ago, but worth remembering.
6. Martyn Joseph Live at the Barnfield Theatre. Vegas, Exeter. Unbeatable live, and the new CD is pretty good too.
