A great weekend

I am currently recovering for a fantastic weekend.

The week end just gone was the Girls' Brigade NSW State Conference, it was inspiring and full of future hope.

Many people believe that GB is antiquated, out of touch with society and out of date.

Well ITS NOT!!

I have sometimes come away from GB things wondering the same thoughts but this conference had more young people at it than there was in the past and a vision and hope for the future which was more evident than I remember seeing previously. My faith has been completely restored in GB.

It was a wonderful privilege to spend time with women who are passionate about Jesus and about helping girls become confident, responsible girls who have a relationship with Jesus. There is nothing about those things that is antiquated.

Another thing that was encouraging for me was spending time with the young women and hearing the plans for the Youth Forum. This is a way that the Youth can be involved in the grass roots of the development and direction of GB. I am looking forward to continuing my involvement as the Chaplain for Youth Forum and helping them find ways of impacting other girls lives.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this or reflections of those who were at conference.

If you have stumbled on this blog and don't know about Girls Brigade them ask in the comments and I will contact you. I am currently trying to make my links work and will be putting a link to their web site up.
