What's a WUKI? It's a Worship UK Institute! In January I had the distinct pleasure of being with 50 people from worship teams across England and Scotland in a fabulous castle in Wales!!

A great group at WUKI!

We worshiped, we learned, we laughed, we dance Scottish dances (my favorite part), we got massages and had honest-to-goodness afternoon Tea (well, maybe that was my favorite part)! Actually, my favorite part was meeting these wonderful, passionate worship leaders and getting to share in their spiritual journey.

Can you see the sheep? Next time you see me, ask me to tell you my sheep story! This countryside in Wales was stunning. A perfect place to spend the weekend.

Here is the WUKI conference site!! WOW. It was everything a castle in Wales can be PLUS all the modern amenities.

While in England, I stopped into a cathedral in Salisbury. They still had a nativity scene up by a local artist. Here is a huge angel flying in the air above the nave.

These life-size images were incredibly beautiful... especially in the context of this massive cathedral. There was even a girl's choir rehearsal going on to make my moments there especially divine!


In the presence of Rev. Wesley

Of course I had to take a picture of me and John Wesley at Methodist Hall! I just wish I had half the preaching gumption he did!

A stop in London at Methodist Hall was fun. I was wishing my friend and co-hort musician Mark Miller was there to make these organ pipes rock!

A beautiful train ride through the countryside brings you to Stonehenge... truly a wonder.

Stonehenge looked even more mystical against the backdrop of a cloudy English afternoon.


Women Drummers

Women Drummers

Some of you have been in my lectures about women drummers from the Ancient Near East. I talk about the figurines of women with spherical objects in their hands... thought by some (men) archeologists to be cakes! Well, they finally got it that these ancient women were the ritual leaders of their day and drums and dance were their primary instruments. I took this photo in the incredible British Museum in London. Here they are!
