Back in Germany
I’ve arrived back in Germany after an absolutely delightful break in England. Not only did I have the pleasure of chatting with a few folk at my college, London School of Theology (LST), but we also found time to visit numerous friends. And we ate too much.
In the latter-but-one category was our time with my best mate, Simon, and his lovely family. Sadly, when the two of us get together the humour tends to become rather dubious (read: scrapes the very pits of utterly corrupt moral depravity), but it made for a laugh - and that’s the main thing.
LST, by the way, is such a great college. It manages to hold together the very best of evangelical scholarship with a lovely valuing of other traditions, a deep respect for the scriptures, and a mission focused active spirituality. They incarnate so much of what I strive for (minus the Simonicly corrupt humour); it is an honour for me to be associated with them all.
Because I’m back home, I’ll try to get round to responding to some of the e-mails that have been sent me in the last few days. However, I have about 500 to sift through so please be patient if you are waiting on me... (Some of it is junk mail, of course, but most of it comes from one of the hoards of admiring young women, members of the Chris Tilling Really Very Holy Ministries fan club [CTRVHMFC], who are desperately telling me that they will kill themselves if I don’t send them a signed photo of myself in swimming trunks)
