iD commitment

So with the summer long gone and with school having been going on for a few weeks now… We find ourselves in the heart of autumn.
Autumn brings about a lot of changes for some of us. The changing colours of falling leaves; central heating is turned on; it’s getting darker earlier; or some people finding themselves in new jobs; some that have started primary school/high school/college/university or bible school [yep, the latter is me!]; new transitions of saying goodbyes and saying hellos… Sometimes we don’t always know how to deal with transitions, but I shan’t go there, as I’ve blogged about that before.
But what I do want to blog about this time, is what’s going on in the land of iD, our youth group in the English side of the BCEC.

iD: My Story

Last weekend, iD, our youth group here at BCEC, had an incredible retreat. The theme was “My Story”, and we looked at three things:

1. We looked at how God has helped people in the Bible (as it turns out, a lot of Biblical characters have awesome stories, but we looked mainly at David);
2. We looked at how God has helped us personally with our own struggles and lives as a whole;
3. And we looked at what to do with our stories (which was to share them with others).
