Thank you, you splendid supportive people! While blogging my angsts did not have any appreciable effect on my sermon, which remains conspicuous by its absence, it did make me feel tons better...not least because someone contacted me by email to say that they had friends with church contacts in HK, so if a crisis occurrs before Monday there's at least someone who knows someone to whom she could turn, apart from the UK Consulate!
Meanwhile, she blogged this morning here and is clearly not in the grip of any immediate disaster (in fact, she's sitting in a healthfood cafe watching the world go by)
Hugs, prayers and your presence in my life so much appreciated.
Now, about that sermon...
