My six-year-old son wrote Hosea 13:8-11. My scrawl appears at Hosea 13:14.

My flowing script (all right, scribble!) is at Eph.4:11-14. I enjoyed it - not least because it gave me the text for my next sermon!

Just read your contribution Tony. Your handwriting is not difficult to read and done with quite a flourish (not a scribble)!
My handwriting tends to get smaller if I write quite a bit. :)

So proud to see my 6 year old’s handwriting there in Ezekiel!

None of the churches myself or my family members have ever regularly attended contributed :( I have attended services at a couple of the churches listed, but didn’t recognise any of the art work or writing. Tis wonderful though.

Inverness has been loaned Volume 31, to which we contributed part of Titus, to display on Doors Open Day. I am stunned by the beauty of the volume and have been inspired to look at the others. I hope that asome of the pages, artwork and text, can appear as postcards.
