As we approach Advent and Christmas I am pleased to send you the latest issue of our E-Newsletter which I hope you will find of interest. Please click here to receive it. We have also updated our annual prayer guide for 2019 and you can click here to receive this. Needless to say we will be grateful for your prayer support as we enter another new year.
The E-Newsletter provides details of our annual conference to be held in Oxford on Saturday 6 April 2019 and recalls a recent visit by CLIS members to The Kilns, the former Oxford home of C.S. Lewis. Looking further afield, we provide details of a current British Library exhibition which highlights the literary heritage of Anglo-Saxon England, including several early manuscripts of the Bible.
We report on a recent Poetry Alive event organised by the Arts Centre Group and draw attention to recent articles included on the web site of the Evangelical Alliance. Karen Hans writes on the importance of reading and encourages support for a petition to protect the funding of the public library service. Finally, Richard Waller provides a meditation for the Christmas season.
As explained in the E-Newsletter, we are delaying the next issue of Christian Librarian, but are working on an expanded Winter 2018/Spring 2019 issue for early in the new year.
