A few months ago, Ian asked if the evening service this Sunday could have a worship focus. As I prayed about what to do, the phrase “pursue God” kept coming to my mind. So often we think about God pursuing us – He sent his Son to seek and save us while we were lost.

What an incredible evening of worship we had this past Sunday night at ECB! Perhaps a bit of an overflow from the night before at Encounter happening there!?
I thought I'd share with you an exercise that I did with a team from Highway whilst on retreat this weekend. I found it incredibly helpful for getting my head around just how beautiful it is when different people bring their different perspectives.
Do you remember those warm, sunny few days we had a couple of weeks ago, when we all thought spring had arrived? They seem a distant memory as I write this with storm Gareth battling outside. It has made me think how the first few warm days of spring are a bit like the first few days or weeks after you first become a Christian .
At the risk of making you feel jealous, I am penning this article sitting under the shade of a tree on a beach, looking out at the azure, Caribbean sea, and sipping a rum punch--courtesy of the Royal Barbados Yacht Club. As I question myself as to how I am here in this beautiful setting, it is all down to our daughter living here on the Island of Barbados.
As I begin to write this I am in my 6th week here at Emmanuel church as the new Communications and Ministry Support Officer. These weeks have flown by and I already feel part of the furniture (in a good way). My first day started in prayer and with thoughts of who I had left behind after 17 years but, I had such a warm welcome from everyone here that I went home smiling and feeling loved.
