Yesterday and tomorrow I have time with folk from NBLC in Manchester who are up in Glasgow for their staff retreat-cum-away-day-day-day.  As they are staying a short walk from the Gathering Place, albeit working with folk from SBC (no, not that SBC) they asked me if I could make some suggestions for activities for yesterday afternoon.  Most of them came on a West End walk with me (forcing me to do some homework on history/culture!) which included seeing the Dali in Kelvingrove (now re-sited in a better, if less than ideal, location) and eating cupcakes in a cupcake-shop.  In the evening they took me with them for a meal and to see the film Senna which was an interesting and poignant portrayal of the racing driver's life using a lot of archive footage as well as some reconstructions.

Today they are off looking at some projects in Motherwell with Stuart Blythe of the Scottish Baptist College and then tomorrow they gather in the Gathering Place for some reflective space before they head south again.

It was great to catch up with their news and to meet staff members who've been appointed recently.  It was great to show off my patch to people.  It was great to be part of a bigger Baptist scene.  And it will a privilege to host them tomorrow in our sparkling, refurbished lounge.

All good fun.
