monastery retreat

Aug 5, 2011

From tomorrow (Saturday) until next Thursday (10th) I will spend time in a Benedictine monastery in France. 

Please keep me in prayer especially during these days of retreat.  A number of people have asked that I pray for them and I will especially over these days.

Since I began the blog just over 12 months ago I have kept “readers of the blog” in prayer. I don’t know who you all are, but the ‘blog’ stats show that while most of you live in NZ, there are many regulars from other parts of the world.

I will not be online while on retreat, so the next update will be later next week.

Thomas was not doubting as much as seeking; he was expressing the desire of one who truly yearns for adult faith.
