From the President's Desk

If I were to rank the months of the year from 1 to 12 - with 12 being least popular – January would categorically be 12. My physiology is at its least efficient and effective in January. Consequently I catch colds, chest infections and if I’m not careful the ‘flu, almost invariably in January. So I am always grateful when something uplifting and inspiring comes along in the opening weeks of a new year. The Bible Week in Mossley Primary School (Tomorrow to Thursday of this week at 7.30pm each evening) is one such event. This has been organised by Newtownabbey Clergy Fellowship and I was involved in the meeting at which it was initially suggested. Sadly presidential duties have prevented me from engaging in the detailed arrangements but the series of services has my full backing and I hope to get to some of them. Bishop Ken Clarke is an exceptional speaker and I look forward to hearing him again. Such jointly organised events are to be welcomed and supported and of course it’s not just those like me who find January a low month who will be blessed at these services. #God is our Adventure. Every blessing.
