On tour..

It’s been a mad week workwise then starting a break. As I write I am back in the North West having spent a lovely couple of days in Liverpool with my middle daughter, Jen. We went on the ferry across the Mersey, visited the Beatles story and travelled down the famous but unremarkable Penny Lane a number of times.

Yesterday, we visited Albert Dock and had lunch there. It’s the biggest collection of Grade 1 listed buildings (for historic interest) in England but was so nearly demolished. But some people saw their potential to be an amazing place (and as Planner I have to congratulate those of my profession involved)…

God is in the profession of restoring ruined lives. He can see the potential in the rubble. However, in many places in the world, Christians are the lowest of the low, like dalit converts in India. Many oppose the restored people they see; change is threatening. But for many the transformation is astonishing and your support helps makes that possible. For others, like in Iraq, it’s having the courage to stay and rebuild shattered communities after the destruction caused by IS and the continued uncertainty. Thank you for helping make this possible.

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?
