Winter Fair

For the first time this winter I encountered snow today. I'd like a white Christmas but travelling through the stuff today was quite challenging.

I left Swanwick for a while this morning to be a member of a discussion panel on behalf of the All Wales Convention in Builth Wells. It was good to share a platform with Kirsty Williams and Nerys Evans. Both are Assembly members. The journey was long and cold but I thoroughly enjoyed the Winter Fair at Builth. It all reminded me of my rural roots. That was good.

Fellowship was also good on my return to Swanwick. Many of us discussed challenging issues around British and Irish ecumenism late into the evening. I learnt a lot from others around several pieces of conversation that I valued.
