Last night I had my first ever virtual GP appointment and today I got my antibiotic cream for my infected big toe. It was not getting any better (nail going blue now) and I was warned by the doctor about the danger of an abscess without treatment. A toe nail on the other foot is falling off too!
Well, Adrian, really wanted to know that I hear you say! But, re-iterating what I said last week, if one part of the body hurts all the body shares in its pain. I have attached a link to the Open Doors “Standing Strong” conference on the evening of 3rd October. It’s free to sign up to and you can hear live from Christians in three countries around the world about what is happening on the ground. It’s always really good.
Finally, an update to my Great North Run position. I actually came 1906th out of 9453 (42nd out of 523 in my age group). A slight tinge of disappointment-training times were better. Why is this important? Because really it isn’t important. It’s so easy to measure ourselves by our athletic positions, our job titles or our qualifications. I am so prone to this. But fundamentally life isn’t about individual accomplishments but about what we contribute to a much bigger picture. How well have you and I loved, on the micro and macro level? I have much to learn, especially from people who in the world’s eyes have no accomplishments….
