Bea's butterfly bag is perfect for Haysbridge. We have to take a separate bag with our breakfast/lunch and flask in it, and leave it in the dining rooms. I packed tea (E.Grey), a round of marmite sandwiches, a marmalade cupcake (and a couple of spare to offer round), and some Lidl's fruit gums (which were popular). All being well, the bag will accompany me to Brighton for the summer Convention. Thank you Bea! A lovely present.
Maggie, Jean and I managed to meet up among the crowds. They had saved me a seat.
The Convention theme was perfect. "Seek Peace and Pursue it" - 1 Peter 3:11
It really brought home to us the words "seek" and "pursue". We must actively seek and promote peace within the family, within the congregation, at work, at school, everywhere.
And one Speaker did remind us that, after Armageddon, when the earth is being transformed into the Paradise it was always meant to be, peace will be the normal state of affairs. We will have "exquisite delight in the abundance of peace" then. At the moment, in a violent world, we have to seek and it pursue it.
