Wendy Warburton: December 2017
A happy new year to you all!
Despite the tinsel still hanging in my study, I'm already looking forward to 2018. The Methodist presence in Dappleshire is significant and I detect its people to be in good heart.
I'm already looking forward to various events in the Circuit calendar. The pantomime at Cedarbrook (this time Mother Goose) is always a highlight in the early part of the year. It seems that Ashingford are going to continue feeding us in all ways. I suspect 'Prayers & Pies' is already over-subscribed. February's World Church Consultation at Central will keep our vision broad as well as updating us of news from Gerubu Heights, Kenya.
I hope 2018 will bring you joy and fulfilment in your Christian lives. I hope it will be a year of harmony from 'Holy Jingles' and that we can avoid too many injuries at Network meetings.
Finally, a word of thanks to those lovely people at ThenMedia for continuing to help us with our online presence. We go into a new year knowing they are always there to support us.
