Waiting expectantly

Yes, waiting for Christmas (of course!!).

But also waiting for a much anticipated announcement about the future of our cathedral in the Square.

Sometime tomorrow (23 Dec) we will have news of (1) the arbitrator's proposal, (2) the Church Property Trustees' response, (3) the Great Christchurch Building Trust's response.*

On a recent overseas trip through Asia and Europe, I was struck by the extraordinary interest shown in the future of the cathedral.

*This morning's Press says the announcement will be at 4.30 pm.

There has been so much prayer over this matter, Peter - not just political activity - that we must believe the outcome will be according to God's most gracious will, and rejoice in it.

"Yea, the sparrow hath found her an house, and the swallow a nest where she may lay her young - even thine altars, O Lord of Hosts, my King and my God".

"Peace be within they walls, and plenteousness within they palaces. For thy brethren and companions' sakes, I will seek to do thee good!"

Marana tha; even so, come Lord Jesus!
