Church things on the tyne are nicely hotting up. In fact I've spent the past couple of weeks trying to develop a wiki-style website to track what's happening. Details to be published in due course!
We met last week for our first Spirited Exchanges gathering (incidentally check out the new Spirited Exchanges UK website- looks good, well done steve!) and all shared who we are and our 'Stage of Faith'. I talked about Darlington and how that had tainted my understanding of church. Another member of the group shared that she'd similarly been screwed by the church but after much reflection she came to the conclusion that the church is still a good and godly institution, it just contains some really stupid people!
I've been thinking about it for a week now so that means it's certainly worth blogging about.
