Alignment Blog

Welcome to the ‘Alignment Blog‘. In the 10 days building up to SYC 2017 we will be posting a daily blog from speakers for this years SYC. The idea of this blog is to help offer some wisdom and insight into how we can be aligned to God in the build up to SYC and beyond.

In our preparation for SYC it is important that we seek God together, that we can grow in our walks with Him. Keep checking back each day for the latest blog, or follow us on Twitter and Instagram for daily reminders.

2016 – Day 2 – What are you expecting?

Have you ever noticed that our attitude often affects our whole experience of something? If you expect to have a bad day at school, you probably will. If you expect to have a great day, you probably will! In Matthew 9, two blind men were expecting something great to happen. They were following Jesus because […]
