Leaving

Tomorrow morning I get on a plane to London.
I have been invited to share in people’s lives:
• Saturday 21st I lead a workshop on “Reconciliation” with my good friend Rory Dalgliesh. This is organised by the York Institute for Community Theology.
• Sunday 22nd I preach at the Haxby Methodist Church
• 23-25 I spend in Ampleforth Abbey preparing for:
• Participating in a seven day retreat at the Corrymeela Community Centre in Northern Ireland. This is a Summer School programme and I will be leading some Bible Studies, reflecting on the South African lessons in reconciliation, and leading the closing Eucharist.
• 6th – 13th August will be spent with my daughter Jessica. Where this will be will depend on her mood: right now we are possibly going to Scotland.
• And then a weekend with another good friend Debbie Dargan.

I am honoured at the opportunity. And I am really excited….I really cannot maintain a ‘studied air of indifference to it all’.

So please pray for me – and for those who will put up with me.
I will keep you posted via this blog.

wow, i see that you're leaving to London. My pastor actually left to London this morning for a tour for his ministry. Enjoy, I'll keep you in my prayers.

Safe journey my friend, and who knows, maybe we will get to see you in the north, either way I will watch the blog (not next week though as I am in Italy), if you cannot get up here then maybe I will get to you.

Peace and Grace
Dave
