I’ve posted a few of my photos of Cuba in my diary posts but a few people have asked where the rest are.  You can see more of them in my Flickr set along with Avril’s colour photos and black and whites.   I hope you enjoy them.

I’d like to hear Gordon Brown speak like this more often.  The biggest criticism of him is that he doesn’t communicate well and that he has no vision.  If this is anything to go by then he has plenty vision and his communication skills aren’t bad either.  But then foreign policy doesn’t seem to win (or lose) elections!

This is my favourite photo from our trip.  It’s not of anything special, just the corridor we lived in at Beit Gemal.  But it sums up our trip for me… that there is light at the end of a dark tunnel.  That the kids we worked with really are Hope in and for their community.

I forgot to say that the pick of my Holy Land trip photos are on Flickr if you want a look.  Let me know what you think!

365 January

365 January

I’m trying hard to take a photo every day for a year.  I started late… but I’ve managed one each day so far.  What do you think?  Any favourites?

It struck me that I haven’t blogged about the two challenges I’m taking part in for 2009.

The first is one I’ve been thinking about for a while then forgot about until it was really too late.  Flickr abounds with 365ers.  The challenge is simple.  Take a photo every day of yourself or something that represents that day.  I wanted to start on 1 January, but forgot, so I’m on picture 3 instead of 7.  Never mind.  I still aim to do 365.  You can follow my progress HERE.

The second challenge is to read the Bible in a year.  This one I did start on time but have fallen behind already.  I’ve got big chunck of Genesis, Psalms and Matthew to read!  I’m using YouVersion to help.  It sets out the Bible in small bits and you can read online, on your mobile or get the book out.  You can also sign up and journal your thoughts and share with other users.

So, those are my challenges.  Follow my progress here and on the Something Beautiful Podcast, where I’ve been promoted (at least they told me it was promotion) to co-host.
