I started this fine book flying to see our daughter in America just before ‘Thanksgiving’. For many this is a family feast – no longer giving thanks to Almighty God for his bounty and grace. I once spent a year teaching in Malawi; I had no idea how privileged the UK was until then. Now I daily thank God for peace, prosperity, and freedom.
