Engaging with Easter

First the bad news ... being a little too enthusiastic with a veggie slicing tool, I have sliced the top of my thumb off today - so I now have my other thumb strapped up! Please pray for rapid healing! And please pray that I won't have to cancel any engagements.

That apart, after going gently for a couple of weeks, I am now refreshed and ready to move forward again.

Firstly, I will be travelling down to Presteigne to lead 'He Chose The Nails' on April 4th. If you live near there and want to join in with that do please email me. The day will take place in a family home which used to be a pub - something of a first for me! Please pray for the success of this event.

Following on from that I hope to have a time of 'receiving', to balance out all that I have given out recently. I plan to have a quietly reflective Easter, dipping in to several local events that promise to be good. Please pray for insights, inspiration and a deepening knowledge of the cross during Holy Week.

I have added a few new Easter poems to my Poetry Page. I am hoping to write more in the coming weeks ...

And finally, some exciting news! An opportunity exists to take a 3-month studying and writing sabbatical (in 2010) at a retreat house in New Zealand and I have decided to apply. I'll be asking you to pray for the success of that application in due course, but, for now, please would you pray for those kind folks who have agreed to write references to support my application.

Thank you everyone.

May you enjoy a blessed, fruitful and healing Easter.
