Roger came to the Kingdom Hall with me on Sunday - and we stayed for the whole meeting - which was lovely of him. The Public Talk was about how to bring up children with a strong Christian faith in spite of the immense peer pressures from 'the world' to go to the other way. And there was a lovely Watchtower about how Jesus has always helped God's congregation - in his prehuman existence, when he was on the earth, and afterwards. Very reassuring in the face of all the horrors.
Roger arrived for lunch yesterday and Col got back at teatime. All the Shoal seem to have got safely back home after a wonderful holiday. He was very happy and even went on a Metal Detecting outing yesterday morning. So Roger had the choice of treasure hunting in local fields or hunting for spiritual treasures.
And he chose the spiritual treasures.
We all met up for a Sunday roast dinner at The George and Dragon. Roger left in the afternoon. We hope to see him again in January. Anne joined us on Saturday night, by Skype from the Cape. It was just like old times in Expatland.
I managed to get out on the work with Jean Saturday morning, although only for half an hour, and I then took her to Ken's and back so he could photocopy the Watchtower article.
So a busy weekend - in my terms - and I am glad to have a day off today. Especially since my arthritis is playing up and walking is very painful. But I have some wonderful brain stretching questions in from Anne about the book of Isaiah that I want to research and answer today. So must get both brain cells in gear and peruse the wonderful Watchtower Bible commentary.
Bea emailed the cousins group to say that things are happening re her move - and sent the new address.
