Awesome Week

I had an absolutely awesome time at Cliff College... the whole week gave me so much life although I was absolutely shattered this morning! I PROMISE to post in more detail about it but I have spent some time setting up the new Youth Mission and Ministry blog and I want to chill a bit before normal life kicks in tomorrow. I have spread the word about blogging and hopefully the new blog is the start of an online community. Fantastic. Just to warn you, I am doing a couple of essays on a comparison of the family in biblical and contamporary times and looking at the effect that the media has on life expectations for young people... I am going to look at contemprary films with a theme of hope and/or redemption I think. As a starter for 10, can you let me know if you have seen Batman Begins, Bullet Boy, 13 and Donnie Darko. This would be especailly helpful if you are under 18! Anyway, it is great to be home and it is also wonderful to be studying again. It beings so much life to me and it is also great to apply directly to things that I feel so passionately about. I have had lots of God challenges as well, although I need to formulate them a little more before I post about them.

Indeed :)

Glad you had fun, it's always good to keep learning once you're past the school/uni phase (unfortunately some of us still have a while til that's over).

Have not seen those movies, but I'm pretty sure the majority of the youth probably have at least seen Donnie Darko and Batman.

I refuse to watch Donnie Darko on the basis that giant evil bunnies scare me.
