What came first, the chicken or the egg?

Well... I have photographic evidence from this year's Christian Resources Exhibition that the Chicken beat the egg - at least to the top of the climbing wall!

The boys from World Emergency Relief seemed to be having a great deal of fun promoting their "Be a good egg!" campaign. It's all about raising money to buy chickens to help people in the developing world. Six pounds buys a (live) chicken - or so I'm told...

Beyond chickens, we looked at chairs for All Saints', stained glass artists for Christ the Sower and shirts for me. I was severely tempted by a clerical hoodie from Cross Designs but decided to be sensible and buy a couple of black shirts - for when I need to dress up...

I also picked up a copy of a new course produced by CMS which aims to help local christians to explore the five marks of mission in the 21st century. It's called 21M and looks quite good.

All in all a very good day. Bumped into a number of old friends and several MK clergy including Chris Collinge, Mindy Bell, Mandy Marriott and the new minister from Newport Pagnell. Always worth a trip.

Thanks Tim and what a great picture. Naturally I was disappointed to lose out to the chicken but there will be more opportunities I am sure. Why not see what else we are up to on
