This is a little book “Journey with John” that I wrote some 15 years ago. I’ve got a pile of copies available to give to good homes. They didn’t quite fall off the back of a lorry, but when the book was first published the print run got lost between the printer and publisher so a reprint had to be done, and when the original ones turned up it was too late to sell them. So they ended up in my garage, and I have decided it is time to let them out to play, gratis, to anyone local who can use them. So 300 or so are in my office and my PA Jo (01353 662137) is waiting for your call to reserve the quantity you would like and arrange a collection time.
The book was based on Holy Week addresses at Carlisle Cathedral, and is laid out with supporting material so that, for instance, a small group could meet each day during Holy Week and use as food for the pilgrimage.
Here’s a really great opportunity for anyone and everyone involved in ministry and mission in the Eastern Region – all denominations included – to spend a day next Monday at Bar Hill hearing a world-class speaker (Sam Wells) in the morning with time after yes, a free lunch, to network too. It’s a way of carrying on the co-working of the Eastern Region Training Partnership even though that body is now winding up.
No cost – but to help with catering please email Charlotte Bentley if you can on firstname.lastname@example.org to say you’re coming.
See you there!
