Youth Coffee Bar. 4 or so
came in. Ian’s girl—saved?
Came home—queer feeling—worried.
The Youth coffee bar
was an evangelistic venture: young people would be invited in, and our people would then try to talk to them about salvation in Christ. It was perhaps done every two weeks: I have a record of it for Wednesday 24th August 1966, Wednesday 7th September 1966
and Wednesday 21st September 1966
. On alternate weeks there was a “youth meeting”: Wednesday 31st August 1966
, “Went youth meeting”; Wednesday 14th September 1966
, “No youth meeting”.Ian
was one of the “Church of England lot” mentioned on Sunday 10th July 1966
and Sunday 7th August 1966
. He had been engaged to a girl called Denise, who was a Roman Catholic. When Ian’s faith was quickened, there arose irreconcilable differences between them, and they broke up. I can’t remember whether they got together again for a short while after Denise was saved
, but I do remember that in 1970 she married someone else.
In the NOTES
section is written:
N.B. Are my feelings…:
NB Are my feelings…
The pen ran out of ink at this point. The final word of the sentence cannot be read in the Ms., and I conjecture: “…genuine?” This note may have to do with Sunday
’s “I am having doubts” or this evening’s queer feeling—worried.
