Blogging output has been a bit quiet over recent months. There are two main reasons for this.
Firstly, since February my mother has been unwell with repeated hospital admissions. She has a range of medical issues which now includes a dementia diagnosis. This has made the last six months quite difficult; it isn’t easy making the mental adjustment as someone you know changes so fast. However, for the last couple of weeks she has been in a residential care home and is gradually coming round to the idea that this will need to be her permanent home, so we are expecting things to start to settle down.
Secondly, I concluded my time with Latin Link Britain and Ireland at the end of last month. In the end the timing of my departure was somewhat quicker than I had anticipated but these two things together have taken most of my mental focus; blogging inevitably has had to take a back seat.
But in September I’m starting an MA in theology and Global mission, which I am going to do part time over two years. It will be a bit of a shock to be doing formal academic work again, though I am hoping that my research and writing skills haven’t deserted me. I’m also looking forward to doing some more structured work in missiology.
So expect more blogs to emerge over the next few weeks with some fresh content and reflections on my experiences.
Thanks for your patience
