This morning Wes and Stewart from Mosaic Church came over to the flat to meet us. Mosaic doesn't offer a traditional church service this weekend. Instead they encourage their members to participate in something Wes calls "missional living" - basically just worshipping God through service. So while Nate, Ben, and Paul helped host a gardening seminar across town, Jenna, Sam and I joined Stewart and became Friends of the River Kelvin. We walk by the Kelvin every day, but this morning we bonded with the river by cleaning up litter with some locals. Jenna perfected her muddy butt slide down the bank, Sam found a car in the water, and I won a new umbrella. All became familiar with Scottish stinging nettle as well. Don't scratch, it only makes it worse!
