Holy Spirit Day
Today we were at Stepps in the Salvation Army Divisional Headquarters, to host our Alpha "Holy Spirit Day". There were 12 of us and we had a really great day. We started off with a time of "B.L.O.C." worship, using the songs...Heart of worship...Open the eyes of my heart, Lord....King of Kings, Majesty.....and finally How deep the Father's love for us! This really helped us to relax and focus our minds on why we were together...to find out...what is the holy spirit?... and how can I receive the holy spirit?
Alec led us through the talks and was superb as per usual! He just gets things across really well and makes things easy to understand. Sometimes we make things far too complicated.
At lunch time we all went to the local Brewer's Fayre and enjoyed a lovely meal together..which is a really important part of the day. Everyone was chatting and laughing and just enjoying each other's company and it was great to be part of it. Needless to say with a deal like, "any starter or dessert for only 1.50 when purchasing a main meal' we were all rather stuffed by the time we got back to start off our discussion groups. Bobby had asked if I would sing "Written in red" but I have to say I've never sang with such a full stomach! Usually I prefer not to eat before I sing.
To close off the day we finished with another two songs....The power of Your love....and...my favourite at the moment...How great is our God. We then had a cup of tea or coffee, tidied up, and went home.
Great day...sad you missed it Thomas..and we'll miss you at Alpha on Monday too...but these things can't be helped.
