The Final Stretch
Today the Torch relay visited Bakewell as our Athlete’s took turns carrying the torch from S Anselms to Ashford. Each team received medals and a team GB flag after their leg. We loved the great looks we got from people walking past the procession!
Thanks for your prayers we were blessed with beautiful sunshine until just was were finishing in the park and playing football after lunch.
When we got back to school there was time for yesterdays weather postponed 7 O’Clock game before swimming. Dinner was a bit different it was our Banquet our teams entered the Olympic Banquet hall with their team flag and then took their seats to watch the lighting of the Olympic Coke Glass Couldren. Between courses we were treated to a mini talent show with guitarists, violinists, flutists, vocalists, poets and comedians having the lime light.
Our evening meeting tonight was looking at keeping in line with God’s ideas on the final stretch when it could be easy just to coast to the finish line. In particular we looked at how Nehemiah listened to God and left his privileged job in the royal court to return to his home and rebuild the city.
