A New Book!

Thank you to you all for the immense love, support and encouragement which has flowed to me in so many different forms throughout my recent health struggles.  I shall be continuing to take Sabbath space for a little while longer and have currently laid aside all ministry commitments whilst I settle into rhythms that are life-giving and health-enhancing for me.  Please pray for me as I journey towards a full restoration of my health.

I have not been completely inactive though and am thrilled to share with you the news that I am partnering with Mary Fleeson of the Lindisfarne Scriptorium to produce a book which will be a resource for meditation and prayer.  I have long been an admirer of Mary's hugely anointed Christian artwork and it is an enormous privilege to be invited to collaborate with her.  The book will be a special combination of my words and Mary's artwork and we expect it to be available before the end of the year.  Please pray for Mary as she undertakes the final design work on this project.  And please pray blessings on her own very gifted ministry.  Mary's beautiful artwork can be viewed online here.

The publication of the Christmas book is on the back-burner for a little while, as are various other writing projects and dreams   ...   ...   but I feel as if I am moving forwards again and a recent time of refreshment on the Northumbrian coast has helped enormously.

Health permitting, I hope to attend two events in the coming weeks: Written by the Spirit and the Retreat Association Conference.  Please pray for spirit-filled blessings from these events and for the health to enjoy them.

My continuing thanks to you all for your prayerful support.
