Earlier today my wife and I sent this update out to many far and near.
As most of you are aware, Fiona has suffered some serious health problems in recent years. Some months ago, it became clear that her cancer had become active again and that there was no further effective treatment. Until now this has not had a significant impact on our daily lives, but recent weeks have been more challenging and so we felt that it was time to share this news.
In April 2012, Richard wrote a blog post called Easter and the Second Shoe. Written at the time of Fiona’s first relapse (and followed by Advent and the Third Shoe and Treasures of Darkness) it speaks of the Christian’s ‘indefatigable hope’. Five years later we retain our confidence in the power and purposes of God, and ask you to join with us in praying for courage and wisdom in this new season.
