Good Friday, England Style

March 21, 2008
  • A walk through High Street with the marching band leading the way, and Christians throughout Chelmsford united – large cross held high. A strong English tradition to gether in all high streets across country. Wind at our backs, and Starbucks in hand.
  • A journey to Tescos supermarket – where is the leg of lamb?  Fire alarm pulled, forcing everyone to abandon half-filled shopping carts. Chilling wait outside until “all clear” – though two clerks found comfort and warmth in eachother’s arms.
  • New favorite song: “Footprints in the Sand” by Leona Lewis.  Also a Brit.

  • Verse spoken tonight at Good Friday service:

Philippians 3: 7-8 – “I once thought all these things were so very important, but now I consider them worthless because of what Christ has done. Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the priceless gain of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.       I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage,   

SO THAT I MAY HAVE CHRIST.”

Powerful isn’t it? So that I may HAVE CHRIST. My realization tonight was that above all my striving for achievements and success, the greatest thing to have, is Christ.

    Hey Lani,
    Great to chat with you yesterday. That is a very powerful verse, awesome. Can’t wait until you come home, but whenever you do, it all depends on what God has planned next for you. Even when i get to thinking that i don’t have a future, my mind wanders back to Jeremiah 29:11 and then i know that i have a future and that He is going to use me for whatever is up His sleeve!
    Hope you are having a great time and hope to hear from ya soon
