CREATIVITY

In the rather splendid setting of the Court Room at Tuliallan, Howard, all 6 feet 7 of him, towers over this poor wee duck, exhorting it to produce the goods while David pretends he's not with these mad people. Just one of the scenes as some wonderful worship was created.
Instead of the more usual creation of worship around a theme, we did it back to front - came up with strange objects and created worship around them. And all the groups did really well, creating worship that was by turns hilarious, moving, poignant, sometimes all at once. If your church has a probationer this year - look out. Don't leave any strange objects lying around or, before you know it.....:) God in our everyday - in a whole new dimension.

I thought Dave was standing behind a lectern preparing to preach, until I enlarged the pic and realised it was a plastic box! I'm sure we never had this much fun at probationers' conferences!

It must depend on the chaplain, then :)

And just to satsify myself and the obsessives on the conference, a quote from http://www.tulliallan.police.uk/www/history.htm

The College Crest and Motto

Lord Lyon, King of Arms, assigned a Coat of Arms to the College during 1957. It incorporates a thistle, surmounted by a Crown on a diced Saltire Cross, accompanied by two open books on a black background and is supported by two Oystercatchers upon a compartment.

The motto "BI GLIC-BI GLIC", representing the cry of the Oystercatchers, translated from Gaelic means "Be wise-be circumspect". It is the motto to which every student aspires. The Oystercatcher is known in Gaelic as St. Bride's bird.

According to legend, St. Bride, fleeing during a period of Christian persecution, fell exhausted on the seashore. The oystercatchers, seeing her predicament, covered her with seaweed so that her pursuers passed by without finding her. St. Bride blessed the birds because they had saved her life and the sign of the cross appeared on their backs. There after oystercatchers became know as St. Bride's Birds.
