Not much to report tonight!

Wednesday went well! I feel like I can't even remember it now! Hahaha. Last night we headed out to a pub called Thomas Beckett- there were about 15 of us- good time.

Today was typical. Church. 2 sessions in the morning. Lunch.

In free time, 3 of us went to the Canterbury Tales museum. I got some pics, but you couldn't use flash, so they're mostly dark; but you get the idea. You've moved through room to room and listened to an audio device. Lots of fun- kinda cheesy and tacky, but lots of fun.

Then we went to this hospital. But it wasn't a medical building. No, it was a building for hospital. It was used in the 15th century for poor pilgrims. They could stay one night and get a breakfast for free!

Then session, evensong, and dinner. Fwww. The sessions are going well. The theme is creation. What is our doctrine of creation? What do other countries say about creation issues?- land, rights, women, environment, etc. It affects everything.

So yesterday, we created posters: What's the good news. What would the good news be if you looked out your window?

Then, draw a pic of either the problems or solution in considering how to respect the integrity of all creation.

And finally- write a confession or hymn of praise. Most people wrote confessions for the wrongs we commit to one another and creation.

And then today, we presented them.

We are also doing indepth Bible Studies- reading in particularly the creation stories, and the prophets. They are always especially good at pointing out the worlds problems.

Then for the afternoon session, we talked about priesthood and prayer (yesterday we did servant leadership). BUT today's session was in this secret chapel!!! We went into this staircase in a wall! So awesome. 2nd floor. Who knew?!

Then Din. And FINALLY a night to sit! hahaha. Last night was our first night off. But we all went out. So tonight, I'm laying low.

We have to write a homilette on Psalm 146: 5-7 (5Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in theLord their God,

6who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them; who keeps faith forever;

7who executes justice for the oppressed; who gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets the prisoners free;)

So, I'm composing now. 300 words. I have a few sentences in and I'm at 45 already...sooooo hahaha

Talking with mom in south korea! (dad's asleep)

Praise God for safe travels!

Will post pics tomorrow.

  1. Do we get to see/hear any of your confessions, hymns of praise, or homilettes?
