Off to Roots 07

We head north this evening to the typical English seaside resort of Southport for the UK Sally Army’s Roots conference.

Should be a goodie!

Sorry we won’t be hooking up with the Headphonaught & Littlelaughalot, but I’m sure we’re in for a cracking weekend all the same.

About Roots 07:

Having decided to send a motivational telegram to his officers, so the story goes, William Booth discovered that his budget would only run to one word. The word he chose was, 'OTHERS'. ROOTS 2007 is resending this message to the movement.

Returning to our roots, we will consider what it means for our lives and our churches to be defined by others. Through worship, prayer and teaching we hope to experience the sheer otherness of the creator God. In seminars and discussions we will become better equipped to serve the last, the least and the lost.

Looking forward to hearing some great teaching from Chick Yuill as ever, hearing what Steve Chalke has to say, and hooking up with all my buddies from around the SA world.
