Day 140 – Thu Jan 19 – – The day started with getting into Isaiah 44 and 45, how is it that when you’ve only got one sermon to prepare it takes as long as two? It makes no sense, but I’m further behind than I usually am at this stage. Claire’s dad is over for some building project meetings. In the afternoon Chris Cradock and I had a meeting down in Liss and we weren’t back till 6.30. I had a long phone call in the night with another minister and ended up writing some emails and letters when I should have been finishing my sermon!
