a little light relief.

I’ve been seriously out of it recently. I spoke at an evangelistic event for Cornerstone Youth on Friday night and preached 2 sermons on Sunday.

In between I was completely laid flat sick on Saturday, not even able to get out of bed and now I’m back at my desk finishing off this essay on the Pope’s ethics for tomorrow morning.

So I need some light relief and I have some.
