All packed

The next stage of my sabbatical begins tomorrow as I head off for six weeks in Jerusalem. I’ve been there many times but never on my own. Normally I’ve had 40, 80 even 120 people with me. This will be a new experience. In addition, I’ve never stayed at St George’s College. So all very exciting.

This week has just been one of preparation and doing the jobs I never get round too. Washing the sofa covers, putting up pictures, even washing thewindow sills. It’s all good.

But now I have to set my sight on Jerusalem. Psalm 122 is my companion and my prayer

I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord. Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
