Putting together a few thoughts for preaching this weekend. It is moving so close to Christmas and at such a rate! Not one Christmas card have I yet sent but I'll start soon. Reading at present Pope's Exhortation called 'Evangelii Gaudium' in which he sets out his hopes and dreams. It is a good, if long, read. Delighted to have had a few jogs recently. Paris is good Place for jogging - a lot of level streets. Back to sermon writing! A.T.
