Oh, so that is why you have been somewhat distracted lately ...

It is true. Blogging will never be the same again. I will need to be even more diplomatic than I have, ahem, always mostly tried to be. But I will keep blogging even though this is now my life. The ways of God are mysterious and I never thought I would reach this day, but it has come to pass - thanks be to God.

The LORD be with you, Peter!
Enjoyed worship with a lovely bunch of folk at St David’s in Christchurch on a family visit last May.
Love in Jesus,
Gene (who is not the other one).

Peter: Wonderful news! You will bring great blessings to the tasks you will undertake, and I hope you will continue to think out loud on your blog. We could all use a bit of sanity out here in the messy world of Anglican doings. Best to you and your family and church.. Mark

Congratulations on your new calling, Peter. I will be praying for you throughout this week that the Lord will grant you strength, wisdom, encouragement and all material resources to preach, teach, counsel and plan for His Kingdom, so that more and more people in the diocese will believe and trust in Christ.
