On the 7th day of Night Shelter week…

After one last joyful evening and morning together, we said a sad farewell to our guests, praised God for a GOOD week, and went off to rest 🙂

rest!

Night Shelter day 6

This morning’s Eucharist was a moving symbol of the reality we’ve been sharing all week – the kingdom of heaven is a great big party! And also a reminder that the party isn’t complete until love joy and justice ‘kiss’ and fill the earth…

These photos give a little glimpse of the wonderful welcome joy and generosity (and amazing FOOD!) that Leeds Grand Mosque shared with us last night. Praise God and thanks be to all of these dear brothers and sisters  🙂

Thanks be to God for another brilliant evening of meeting and eating. Super tasty pasta carbonara thanks to Lorea and Chris, and homemade choc-chip cookies courtesy of Sheraz and Raadhiyah. Mostly Raadhiyah 🙂

Another cheery evening of food and fun and friendship-building! Big thanks to Janet from St Michael’s Headingley who cooked us supper, to Sally from Leeds Vineyard Church for serving up and washing up supper, and to Simon from Hyde Park Methodist Church who did the overnight shift…

Praise God for another wonderful evening- full of new friends, tasty curry, stories and conversations, card tricks and games (SPOONS!) and lots of laughs 🙂
