Some of you of a certain age may remember the comedy trio, The Goodies, singing a song with the above title. Or the phrase coined by Magnus Magnusson on “Mastermind”, “I’ve started so I’ll finish”. That’s where I am at currently with my 60@60 challenges-doing bits and pieces on a number of things but no concrete things to finally tick off. Do you ever feel in that “in-between” place? It would be great to tell you something exciting I’ve completed but I can’t. Not exciting for either blog writers or readers! But sometimes preparation is as important as completion (and essential to it).
A couple of random kindness acts and another recipe done. That’s all I can report. So, please stick with me! By Sunday evening I should be able to show you the rainbow 🌈 beard. And with some clarity on lockdown relaxation I can start booking for the final leg of Pilgrims Way, hopefully in May.
I loved the above bench near Dorking. Pilgrimage, or anything worthwhile, is about keeping going even when it’s not easy. And that resonates so much for persecuted Christians. For many, their decision to follow Christ has major ramifications. A civil servant in the Iranian Parliament was a house church leader but was recently betrayed by an informer. He was quickly sacked. Out of work it is now very hard for “R” to find a good job but He is trusting God in his “in-between” place. His faith comes at a cost as it does for many around the world. This video is a good overview of the price paid..
