If you are going to spend 16 hours in a car you couldn't do much better than travelling with a good friend who has a deep and enquiring theological mind.
We were driving to a Salvation Army conference in Glasgow with the gear for an Alt. Worship experience called 'A Deeper Chill....' that the college put together as an after hours event.
I knew that I would have to drive the gear up, so I twisted Matt Spencer's arm to come with me on a road trip north. 800 miles later we had covered a lot of ground in more ways than one and I was better for our time together.
