sorry for the lack of blogging here. as time has gone on i've realised this is not the place for my little rants but is more of a public forum - what is put up here will determine how echo is judged as a group by those who hit on this site, and that makes me a little uncomfortable, and also leaves me with a feeling of responsibility not to make this blog about my own opinion.

here's a bit more info on what we're up to at the moment:

we have a couple of projects on the go - a proper godspace website which will hopefully be launched very soon, and also a project called 'ethical clubbing' which is designed to serve the clubbing population of belfast. it'll have up-to-date clubbing news for belfast, as well as lots of relevant advice, information and contacts for various relevant ethical issues relating to the culture. we're also getting printed two runs of clubby flyers - one for publicity and the other with basic harm reduction information on it. the goals are to highlight ethical issues in club culture and to get basic harm reduction information into the hands of clubbers. there's no spiritual slant at all as we thought this would not be advantageous to the goals of the project, and we wouldnt have got funding for it anyway. i'm not sure anyway that coming at ethical issues with an agenda is the proper way to do things - much better to give people the information and leave them to make up their own minds, which i think is a much more adult and spiritual approach. the project isnt to be launched for another few weeks, but we'd appreciate any feedback you had, eg suggestions, criticisms, thoughts, etc. via comments here or email

you can check it out here (although not 100% finished yet) -

This is the echo weblog. An echo is somewhere between a voice and no voice, somewhere between hearing and not hearing, and somewhere between knowing and not knowing. It's a place of faith and doubt. It's for all those trying to shed their snake skins of tradition, pride, ignorance, prejudice, and trying to work things out for themselves. It's for those caught dancing in the dichotomy of clubbing and christianity, and still trying to follow Christ.
a few of us were discussing what songs the disciples hummed to themselves as they walked home on ascension day....which do you think it was?
'leaving on a jet plane' - like in armageddon (the film that is, not the real thing)
anything by 'air'
'lifted' by 'the lighthouse family'
'up, up and away' by 'andy williams'
'i believe i can fly' by 'r kelly'
'reach for the stars' by 's club'
'stairway to heaven' by 'led zeppelin' (or rolf harris, depends on your taste)
'the only way is up' by 'yazz and the plastic population'
'i'll fly away' by 'alison krauss'
'movin on up' by 'primal scream'
