Spring Harvest

David and friends on the beach

Well, I have just got back from my first trip to Spring Harvest in Skegness. 7000 people at Butlins, and 1800 of them students. It was an uplifting and challenging time, and yet it is amazing how easy it is to find time and space to be alone in a crowd as well. I loved my walks on the beach even though Skegness is not known for its tropical climate. Bracing (that is such a British word!) is more like it. A large group from our village and Wellingborough Christian Youth Centre went together, and we all met for coffee and chats though went our separate ways to different talks and seminars. Some were outstanding and some not that great, but it was all fascinating, and the music led by Kristyn Getty and her husband Keith was stunning. The noise the Big Top produced was awesome. David had a great time, and it was good to see him with all his friends. There were days when I did not see him at all because he was happy and busy. I stayed with the Elvin family and we enjoyed doing kiddie things too with their 3 little ones. The week flew by, and it is back to reality now............ there is no food in the house!
