Feeling very loved and #thankful after some beautiful people sent Robyn and I away for a night and arranged childminding until tomorrow afternoon. This is the view they arranged.

Got to preach to a bunch of SU chaplains today about being 'ambassadors for Christ' — God's image bearing representatives — in our schools. I asked them 'who'd be in the picture' if there was a photo representing their relationship with the world; what cause would their image be attached to? Who are they 'brand ambassadors' for? And, if they took a selfie, who'd be in it?

I quoted this psychologist, Dr Ann Steel who says of the selfie: "It is the millennial generation's stamp on the earth, proving that they were here and they made a difference, regardless of what form it took." As God's ambassadors and image bearers we're his mark on the world; and it was great hanging out with these guys this morning; I like having them as part of the picture of following Jesus and to encourage them to keep remembering:
"What we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake." (Which is why this is an ironic selfie... and it's about them inasmuch as they're on about Jesus...)

The coffee is a hit with the construction workers.

Pan. Cakes.

Coffee with love.
Plenty of people in here this morning.

Spidey.

Taking the two littlest to their first Sea Eagles game. He'll grow into this jersey.

Confession: I mostly buy frozen yoghurt cause I can add these things. Last time I asked if I could just fill my cup with them, but I haven't been game yet...

Snow white.

Talked to the kids in RI (Religious Instruction = scripture for non Queenslanders) at school today about why people believe this weird God stuff; or why Christianity still exists.
This is it.
Hope.

Sometimes I really love life as it is now, and don't want 'the order of things' to change, but then I read the paper, or remember the way friends are suffering and I think this might be nice. “‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” —
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭21:4-5‬ ‭

This monkey worked hard to earn an umbrella (in our puzzle piece reward system). I think it's mostly for photos.
