A review of the first day conference
In October last year around twenty of the BCC women spent the day at The Endsleigh Mercy Centre on Beverley Road in Hull. We had a warm introduction by sister Catherine which she ended in her deep Irish accent by letting us know they were looking for new nuns, there were nervous giggles all round. I did hear one of our dear sisters in Christ say she might join them. (Yes, you know who you are!)
We had a beautiful time singing praises, which were lead by Angie Lendon of Hull New Life and then we kicked off our sessions with our very own Sister Carolyn. She talked about us being the body of Christ and all having our part to play in the body. This lead easily into Amanda’s talk on the new commandment Jesus gave his disciples to love one another and by so doing show ourselves to be his disciples. Lucy’s session followed with a challenge of being spiritual parents to the children and young people in our church and in our neighbourhoods. We don’t need to be parents to be able to do this either. A delicious lunch of baked potatoes, and they were cooked to perfection, followed along with various puddings. Yvonne took the session after lunch and took us on a journey of prayer.
Altogether it was a lovely day to connect with the women there and to hear what God was saying to us through some new voices.
