Happy Christmas 2005!!

Wow ... pressure. I always get a feeling of panic whenever I get tagged by a chain letter or email - you have to send it to 10 people or eternal bad luck will be yours. And now I find my great friend Mark has done the same to me!!

So yes indeed a day conference to any of those heavenly churches would be great. Or a book voucher is just as good. I note that Mark didn't say any kind words about my blog though ... oh dear. I think his heresy siren is sounding. Still we agreed many years ago on the Isle of Wight that he was the fatherly Arthur Wallis of our friendship while I was the more radical Gerald Coates. Remember that Mark!?

By the way a Christmas present that Mark would appreciate I think - for any who are wondering is a years subscription to "Victory" magazine (available from: ... go on. He'd love you forever.

So ... here's my Happy Christmas two for this year. Both of these guys are outstanding Christians and challenge me frequently and in different ways in faith and love and commitment to Christ and His Church:

1. To Luke: - and the present I recommend for him is definately to send him to the Mobilise conference at Brighton in July next year.

2. To Jul: - Well revival in Canada seems to be top of her list, but failing that, I think a great book would definately fit the bill! And maybe some warm clothes if the move from the USA to Canada is happening!!

You're right. My husband gets me a couple of books every year. He usually gets me classic literature of some sort. It's always very interesting because he doesn't read, not fiction at least. This year I got Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens and The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoevsky. It should be interesting reading. I got him a hardcover set of Ante-Nicene Fathers, 10 volumes, per his request. So we'e got a bit of reading to do this year. Books are my weak spot, and I am also notorious for giving away our books so we have some I've purchased 3 or 4 times. Merry Christmas to you, and I hope you got some great books.
