The 60 day beard..

It’s hard to believe that the 60 day beard has reached its target but it has. Uncut, untrimmed, just a little shaving around the bottom. It’s certainly been a bit quicker in the morning! Some folk even like it and it shows I can grow hair somewhere on my head!

The next escapade can be blamed solely on the Rev Duncan Keys who said he would sponsor me if I dyed it like a rainbow ๐ŸŒˆ So I spent quite a bit on hair dye and here is the result. Sadly the blue, indigo and violet all seemed to turn into a dark mass and the red, orange ๐ŸŠ and yellow decided to be pretty similar too. I’m sure you ladies would have made a much better job but I tried. Any sponsorship appreciated!

This will last a couple of days (it will be interesting to explain it to colleagues from 6 other authorities at a meeting tomorrow) then it will be the 60 hour moustache.

All this is for the 340 million who don’t have the same freedoms we do. Who might be imprisoned in their own homes. A multicoloured beard will make me stand out; their faith makes them stand out out for all the wrong reasons. I can wash this out (eventually); for them being a Christian is a dangerous and permanent label. Being different for them isn’t good. But our standing alongside them makes a difference. Thanks for supporting them and me ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜ƒ There is a justgiving link on my webpage or type https://justgiving.com/fundraising/AdrianSmith6060 in Google.

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 ยฃ6 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?
