To care is not enough (by Coralie)

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 24/02/2010 - 20:50

I spent the weekend near Derby at the SCM (Student Christian Movements) big conference listening to some incredible chat, and contributing some probably less amazing chat myself. At some point, I’m not sure exactly when or in response to what I scribbled a note at the side of a page in my journal. In untidy pencil scrawl I wrote “to care is not enough.”

It's been a busy day!

I have to confess to sleeping through morning prayer, but I was bright-eyed and ready for Michael Taylor's keynote first thing. And I was glad I was. Michael led us gently through a challenging talk based on his many and varied experiences, and left me full of new questions - always a good sign.

And so it begins...

Evening all, and greetings from SCM Conference 2010. I thought I'd get the ball rolling on the blog front, although as yet there's not much to say! People are unpacking and catching up, the hall is set up (the sound desk having finally decided to cooperate), as is the prayer space, and in ten minutes conference will properly open as we all break bread together once more.

For those of you who can't be with us this year, you are in our thoughts and prayers, and we promise to keep you updated here on the blog, and (for those of you on twitter) via the #scm2010 hashtag.
