Hi everyone, today’s readings are Hosea 8 and Luke 11:14-28.
However , I just want to take a moment to reflect on the past 12 months of this blog. To the credit of many of our bloggers we have somehow been able to limp nearly to the end of 2017.
It has been obvious to many, that a number of people, myself being at the top of the list, that we have been very tardy in keeping up with our blogs, for that I personally apologise.
I believe if it was not for the hard work of the many of committed members that this blog would have closed a long time ago. To them I owe them a personal debt of gratitude. Especially to people like James Boswell and Steve Bowden and no doubt many more.
It is my hope and prayer, that if you can extend your forgiveness to the ministry team than I would like to see this blog continue. It has been a long journey but I am not of the opinion that its time has come to an end.
So I hope and pray that you can join me in running well to the end of 2017 and play a role in keeping up our momentum well into 2018 and beyond.
Finally, may God use his words and our words to bring life to his people.
Yours faithfully Ian Barnett
