One important thing

How time flies! I have been meaning to write but not got round to it with all the things happening, which I am sure I will blog about soon! But for now I wanted to draw your attention to something that the widow of much loved and much missed George (who was a fellow blogger and friend since I moved here) asked me to mention.

George's son Theo decided, as a new year's resolution to do something he'd never done before - to run a half marathon. Being the kind of family they are the idea was also to make this an event that meant something so he's chosen a charity to support which George would have been very keen on - a children's cancer charity - CLIC Sargent. It's a very worthwhile charity, and kudos to Theo for being willing to do it - can I encourage you to support it via justgiving, please. The page is here.... This is the first time I've ever asked for anything like this on the blog, I hope you all don't mind, but I thought carefully about it and would love you to feel you could support it.

That's it for now, more to follow about the joys and sadnesses of ministry here in God's own county....

How about if I donate to a similar charity here at home?

I will be happy to Alastair. I do a lot with Relay For Life here in America - that is our big Cancer fundraiser - it's not specifically for childhood cancer - but it was a child that got me into it. So I would be pleased to help children over there too!

What a wonderful idea Alastair and a great way to remember his Dad.
