We have enjured leaden skies for most of the week and frequent downpours; hopefully, things will get better, though the sun is somewhat furtive. It will be a relief not to go shopping for a few days this coming week.
HUGH LAVERY ‘ Christianity cannot be proved. It can only be witnessed – by Christians. By men and women who have, over two millenia, found in Christ the neighbour they need, the saviour they sought, the light that illumines the whole landscape of reality and makes them say, ‘It is good to be here.’
