I’ve been trying to do a little scanning today, but not getting very far. I have a copy of Michael Bourdeaux’s Patriarch and Prophets : Persecution of the Russian Orthodox Church (1968) here to do. Interesting he salutes the courage of the people of Czechoslovakia in the introduction — the “Prague Spring” had just been crushed, one imagines.
They say that today is the most depressing day of the year (how encouraging!) Dark with heavy rain this lunch time — just turning to hail! –, and the high winds are blowing down trees. There’s something to be said for spending winter in a warm climate every year, you know!
I’m going into hospital later on today, for a small procedure. I’m told that it is not very risky, but it doesn’t sound much fun. With luck I won’t know anything about it. I’d appreciate prayer that all goes well all the same.
UPDATE (4/1/12): just to say that I am out and had the all-clear, and am waiting for the sedation to disappear. Apparently I shouldn’t drive, use heavy machinery, or make any financial decisions. Not sure whether blogging is allowed, tho.:)
