If you know us in real life you will get that this is a picture of us not our old friends! We didn’t quite get round to doing a selfie with them. It was a joy to catch up with Ray and Gill who have known Paul longer than I have. At the moment we see them every couple of years but you pick up where you left off last time with news, views, debates, discussions all framed by great food and drink! The morning was an even bigger surprise when Ray’s sister walked up to Paul saying hello Nashie boy! They hadn’t seen each other for something like 40 years! We return to our writing week recharged and with a fresh sense of what it is God calls us to do and of God’s faithfulness through the years.
