On Thursday evening I was invited to speak at our Alpha course. My subject was "How can I resist evil?" I spoke for 32 minutes according to my curate (I had been told to do 20). One of my illustrations was the way in which my dog tries to control me rather than obey me. It was about allowing God control in our lives. This morning I decided to show my dog how he should behave. On our walk I kept myself out in front. This was fine till we came to an iced bank by the river and I went first, slipped and fell, pulling the dog on top of me. Tomorrow I will be sending him down any steep bits before me.
