It was my turn to submit a Pastoral reflection for the North Canterbury newspaper in November. I sent an abbreviated comment about where faith plays a part in bad news. The paper asked me to expand on it and resubmit it as a feature article. It appeared in last weekend’s Hurunui News. My poem Light In My Long Night (elsewhere on this blogsite) was also printed with the article together with a family photo of our 2007 family reunion. The article as it appeared in the newspaper is appended. Double-click the image to view full-screen image.
