Today I flew to London to go to the Courage 25 year anniversary service. Jeremy Marks, the founder of Courage, is semi-retiring and as a result Courage will be ceasing in it’s current form and taking on a new format called The Two 23 Network. It looks like it should be really exciting and I can’t wait to see how things develop.
The Thanksgiving Service was absolutely lovely, although a little lengthy, which was a bit of a shame as it meant that I wasn’t really able to spend much time chatting with people. One of the nicest things about the service though was hearing people talk about their experiences of being at Courage and also the impact that Jeremy has had on their lives. Dave Tomlinson spoke at the service and was really challenging.
I miss seeing the Courage members. Over the years their support and faith has been both comforting and inspirational. Whilst being in Guernsey is, without a doubt, the right thing for us, it doesn’t stop me missing people and having input from them. Courage has played such a major part in my own life over the last 15 years, and I truly appreciate all that the organisation has done for me over this time.
It has been a lovely day, but now I am absolutely shattered! I think I need to take it easy tomorrow! This photograph is the beautiful window at St Luke’s and Christ Church in Chelsea which is where the service was.
