A change of pace during half-term has been very good to me. A change of pace, always brings a change of perspective. The confidence of Christ’s never failing work in His people, continues to so encourage me. The kiddies have been growing in their technology skills. They love YouTube more than I love printed books.

A good conductor does not merely tell everyone what to do; rather they help others hear what might be. For this to become possible, they are not primarily a telling but a listening individual: even while the orchestra is performing loudly they are listening inwardly to silent music. They’re not so much commanding as obedient… The conductor conducts by […]
