You apparently know about my thing for English Country Houses.
So thanks for the article on them.
In this season of Advent, we renew our confident hope that such a future is possible. We give thanks for the Christmas gift of Jesus Christ that has broken through our selfishness and begun the work of our liberation. We reaffirm our conviction and commitment in the name of love; and we say ‘don’t be afraid’ to all who stand uncertainly on the edge of decision. Don’t be afraid; act for the sake of love.
Love casts out fear. The truth is that what is most likely to get us to take the right decisions for our global future is love."
