Life goes on. Have spent the past week working on an essay entitled “Did Jesus attribute any importance to his death?”. You’d think the answer would be obvious, but no… Had a really good supervision on it just now, the first one with Justin Meggitt who is most excellent. I’m about to start working on an essay about how Jesus resurrection affected early Christianity, which should be a little more fun. Anyway, now I’ve got a little more time I’ll just write about some of the highlights of the past week.
Last Wednesday, myself and Ruth went to have dinner with Dan and Joy. It’s quite strange because we’ve known them while they were engaged, although when one of them was in China, the other was in England and then they switched. Anyway, they got married in the summer (which I was invited to, although was in China at the time) and they’re now going to have a baby, just as Dan’s meant to be having his finals! Scary stuff! It was good to catch up with them again.
Thursday evening, my friend Paul came up from London and also some of Ruths friends came over from Oxford. We all went out for some pizza and then came back to my room and chatted until about 1am. I’m going to miss that about Cambridge 🙁 Friday was spent working and I then went to Harry’s which was good fun too. After that, I went out with Paul and Rachel (from our old bridge group) and had some nice Itallian food, and we then came back to mine and watched “The motorcycle diaries” which was a really good film that Zishan highly recommended to me. It’s a story of two people travelling around south America on a motorcycle and has really good scenery. Not really “Die Hard” but quite good nontheless.
Saturday, I didn’t really do much but in the evening, Paul and I went round to see Tabs for a bit and then I got an early night. On Sunday I was baptised. Eden church was packed with lots of friends and a few of my family came up as well. I’ve put some photos up of the service which you can have a look at (thanks Ruth, Raeko and Joe). My mother put on a lovely meal after it; thanks very much! In the evening, I went to Eden and then went round for a meal with the guys I was in China with. It was really good fun, the 10 of us together again.
On Monday I met up with Patrick for some Bible discussion which is always good fun. I then went to the Chinese Christian Fellowship because my friend Katie was speaking there. She did a really nice talk about the ministry of reconciliation. I can’t imagine ever doing a sermon in a second language but she did really well.
