Inspired, challenged and made me smile
1. Inspired you
The Holy Spirit has inspired me, which might not be a massive surprise to hear me say but has been fabulous. This week I had my wednesday communion service written, that was until prayer that morning threw it all into the air. I realised that it needed to be changed and really close to the wire it all came together. It was received well and I'm sure better than my original version. I was inspired.
2. Challenged you
My back has challenged me; having a slipped disk is no small matter and it's forced me to rest much more than I'd like to. But then that's also allowed me to think more and my blogging has certainly benefited from it, in quantity anyway.
3. Made you smile
A book about Jesus as a comedian in the writing of his parables made me smile this week, the writing of the post about it made me giggle and the resulting twitter debate made me laugh out loud.
4. Made you weep
I watched War Horse this week and it made me weep, properly weep; about the horror and pointlessness of war and the loss of human life. The film is clearly meant to tap into your emotions and feel this; but I have been left all week with this desperate desire to put a stop to all war and conflict.
5. Kept you going?
I have been kept going and feeling positive this week by all the Holocaust Memorial Day activities and responses; the world wants change and it's a fabulous thing to see. Speak up and Speak Out.
