We're off to the EMW Aber Conference and then for a week in Carmarthen after that. The main speaker is Don Carson, so we're looking forward to some good ministry and fellowship. On my holiday reading list will be Ten Cities that Made an Empire, by Tristram Hunt and Catastrophe: Europe Goes to War 1914 by Max Hastings. I'll probably throw in something theological and perhaps a novel as well. It'll be our first time away without our two. No more theme parks and crazy golf for us. Regrettably.
