Nearly time to pack the boats #yfcconf14

We all go home tomorrow. Back to our lives, our young people.

Right now my heart and mind is stuffed to the rafters, but over the coming weeks my centre director and I will unpack all we learnt and put it into action.

In the meantime I am thankful for the teaching I have received, obviously born out of experience and prayer.

As we turn our hearts to home we face many challenges, but God IS faithful and at the end of the day it is his work not ours.

Just like St Brendan we travel beyond our present shores, we know that God’s love surrounds us.

In the words of the Iona song:

Beyond these shores
Into the darkness
Beyond these shores
This boat may sail
And if this is the way
Then there will be
A path across this sea

And if I sail beyond
The farthest ocean
Or lose myself in depths below
Wherever I may go
Your love surrounds me
For you have been before
Beyond these shores
