Beginning my Sabbatical
It's 7 years since my last sabbatical, when I spent 6 weeks in Kenya. Now I have the opportunity to take 7 weeks study leave in which I will be making a retreat at the Ignation Spirituality Centre at St Beuno's near St Asaph in N Wales, attempting to write music that we can use at St John's for the communion service, do some reading on the subject of 'Lectio Divina' (Spiritual reading), and visit Kasese in western Uganda. A busy time - and not a holiday, though I hope it will be refreshing.
