Happy New Year…

Well 2020 has finally gong!

The tide has come in on 2021. Happy New Year! I was struck today by the following quote from a chap called Steve Cleary who has put together a digitally animated version of “Pilgrims Progress” that has taken 5 years to complete.

“God can give us a big vision and the road to seeing that through can be filled with trials, struggles and even attacks…When we don’t see the vision coming to fulfilment quickly we can experience doubt and despair. I personally believe many godly visions have been abandoned by those who couldn’t see past “small beginnings”.

What have you got planned for 2021? If it is truly something you believe in, keep persevering. It could even be doing a challenge for Open Doors like me….

If there is one thing that many persecuted Christians ✝️ teach us is to keep persevering even in very hard situations.

60@60 is now 5 months in. While I am doing well it is a continuing challenge to move towards the £6000 target. I still need your help and support and I know I need to persevere, be creative and press on when I can’t see a way forward. But it’s worthwhile to support persecuted believers.

One activity I have tried in the last couple of days and added to my list of things done is Kintsugi. This is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with precious metals. The brokenness is made a feature and beautified. Whatever you feel your weaknesses are they can be made to be beautiful. For me a lovely picture of what God wants to do with our weaknesses and wounds.

Finally a quick reminder about the launch of the 2021 World Watch list of the 50 worst countries to be a Christian. This will be beamed live from Parliament at 4pm on Wednesday 13th and there is still time to invite your MP. Thanks for all your support 🙂 😃

Turning 60 is a door to a new decade. I want to use these years positively, starting with the next one. So I want it to be a year of trying different things as well as familiar one and to do a couple of challenges. 60 things at 60 with the aim of raising £6 000 for the charity Open Doors, serving persecuted Christians around the world, many who live with very little. Would you be part of the adventure with me?
