It's all hotting up in Minehead

So, it's day 4 already. Doesn't time fly when you're rushed off your feet?

It's been the usual mixed bag. The high point for me has been the Encounter Cafe. Led by Pete and Becca Brierley, it's been an eclectic mix of film, discussion, board games and interviews, nicely held together by Pete and Becca's easy style. It's what church should be, actually; a place where we can laugh and cry, have fun and be challenged in equal measure.

On the team front, we've seen a lot of people with a whole range of issues needing our attention and prayerful response. Last night I had the joy of leading a member of the Butlin's staff, a Hungarian man, to faith in Jesus, something he described as the best thing that's ever happened to him on the best day of his life!

The most unexpected sight of the week so far is of a young man walking to his chalet clutching a copy of Karl Barth's Church Dogmatics (I couldn't see which volume). I'm guessing this is something he didn't buy at the Spring Harvest bookshop.

Tonight and tomorrow will be busier - and it's been busy already!
