A Random Start!

Posted on 05 September 2008
John Delves first twenty-four hours at Ferndale were, to the say the very least, marked by great variety!

No sooner was he in Southend than he was whisked off by Ron Wright to a meeting of the Southend Homeless Action Group before assisting a family associated with the Church to move into their new flat! The following morning it was off to Oxford to accompany Stephen to a consultation of Evangelical and Orthodox theologians. While there he was able to meet Archbishop Malkhaz of the Evangelical Baptist Church of Georgia! Archbishop Malkhaz was especially concerned that western Christians protest against the recent invasion of Russia into his homeland and shared some of the privation that his people are having to suffer from Russia’s ‘bully-boy’ tactics. Stephen comments, ‘We wish to stand with the Archbishop and draw attention to the breaches of international law that have been perpetrated by Russia against a vulnerable neighbour.‘ Stephen has agreed to be part of a small group to draft a firm Christian response to Russia’s actions.
