Ferris Bueller Is On Line Two

To everyone’s surprise, tonight it was time for an 80’s classic film. We had a wide range of films to choose from, but the democratic process resulted in the selection of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off originally released in 1986 (to give you an idea of just hold old it is – that was the year Nicci was born!). For those of you who’ve never seen it, here’s a quick summary of the storyline:

“Ferris is a street-wise kid who knows all the tricks. Today he decides to take the day off school. When Ferris takes the day off, so must his best friends, Cameron and Sloane. Cameron is reluctantly persuaded to borrow his father’s Ferrari, and together they hatch a plan to get Sloane out of class. Suspicious dean of students Ed Rooney knows all about Ferris, but can never catch him. Ferris’ sister Jeanie is also frustrated that Ferris always gets away with his tricks and she doesn’t. Furthermore, Ferris is an ‘angel’ in his parents eyes. It’s Ferris’ day off, he’s out to enjoy himself, and he does!”

It’s not a fast-pace film by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s got some classic scenes and quotes:

“You’re not dying, you just can’t think of anything good to do.”

“It’s understanding that makes it possible for people like us to tolerate a person like yourself.”

We were pleased to welcome Steph’s friend Yolanda who joined us tonight. She probably didn’t get a true flavour of Amicus, so we hope to see her again soon.

Before everyone went home, we watched an amazing news report about the man who grew a finger. Well a finger tip – but it’s just as amazing. This led to a whole string of bizarre “what if” scenarios and a number of questions. Please take a few minutes to read the story and watch the short video, and as you think about how the bones knew to be on the inside, and the finger nail ended up in the right place, reflect on just how amazing God’s creation is…

Important: with the stress of revision and exams looming large, it can only mean one thing – it’s almost time for the H3 Festival [pictures here]. Full details of the line-up are available on the festival website, but here’s the important information: if you want to take advantage of the reduced rate you have just a few days left. If you order your ticket by Monday, the cost will be £25 for an adult weekend ticket and £20 for a youth ticket. That cost includes the Camping fee. The adult ticket will go up to £40 and the youth ticket to £30 – so it’s well worth paying early and making the saving. Please order your ticket through Nick Lingard, but do it by this Monday!

Next Week: Board Games at the Church Centre – bring along your favourite.
