Happy Belgian National Day!

Not quite sure what we are celebrating but going to pray the rain ends soon so I can head downtown for the military parade and fireworks later on.

Oh and did you hear that the Belgian prime minister gave his resignation to the King last week? So no government again for a while… what a strange country this is sometimes.

On another subject, my wee flat was crowded with 20 people last night for church. I wonder what my neighbours made of all the singing…

A group of us from church are reading ‘Everything Must Change’ by Brian McLaren over the summer. He is someone I have heard such a lot about, both good and bad, but I’ve never read anything by him so this seemed like a good oppurtunity to stop repeating other people’s opinions and have some of my own. I’ll let you know what I think. In the meantime, Tall Skinny Kiwi interviewed him a while back about this book, if you’re interested.
