Looking Back December 3, 2009

Last weekend I was back in Preston for a friends (well two friends!) wedding, which was a great opportunity to catch up with lots of people. Also though, I found it really weird to be back in Preston. Preston was “home” to me for three years and I’ve now not lived there for nearly as long, so as the train was going through Preston and I saw my old lecture halls, my old flat and places once so familiar I got to thinking about how much I have changed and how I am not the same person that left Preston (which is a good thing!)

Seeing places evoked memories (good and bad) and the more I saw and thought, the more I realised that God has been changing me and as much as I didn’t want my time at uni and CU and church there to end, I’m really glad it did!

Maybe the above doesn’t make any sense to anyone else . . . sorry!

Also, found this video (through some facebooks statuses!) which kinda underlines the above! When I was on UClan CU committee, I grew to having some of these convictions but wouldn’t have verbalised them like this, or held them so strongly. It’s so great to see that the CU has grown in boldness and is totally set on the vision on “Living for Jesus and Speaking for Jesus” on their campus with a passion that is so strong! I am really passionate about CUs and how they can really impact their campuses with the gospel, but as a student I wasn’t that passionate about CU, because (to be honest) I was a little ashamed of the gospel. That’s why I’m now so excited to see a group of students at UCLan so passionate and holding firm to the truths of the gospel 🙂

Awesome!

  1. This has excited me soo much as I get thinking about Freshers week and Mission Week. Wanting to make Jesus and the Gospel known through serving those on campus. Awesome! Thanks for sharing!
