If I had a two-pence for every 1000-year old church that pops up randomly when I’m lost on an Oxfordshire back road I could buy a sheep farm, like the one behind our house. So, since last week sometime we’ve had no internet and our mobiles barely work accept in small place in the corner of the kitchen. But it’s been a good grid-break as we settle in and finally get beds—and I now have a desk! #IKEA So, more photos coming soon as we venture into St. Aldates for church tomorrow. Thanks for all the prayers!!  (at Abingdon School Lower Rugby Fields)

Timothy Willard loves to sit with his wife by the bonfire and make up stories about Tom the Backyard-Badger for his three lovely daughters. When he's not carving up the Appalachian Mountains on his Salsa El Mariachi, you can find him busy writing a book, collaborating on a book, or reading a book written by someone dead and gone. Timothy studied beauty in the works of C.S. Lewis under theologian Alister McGrath. The author of five books, including Veneer: Living Deeply in a Surface Society (Zondervan), Timothy is currently finishing The Life-Changing Adventure of Chasing Beauty (Eerdmans, 2019), preparing his doctoral thesis for publication, and trying to find a publisher for his first novel The Tempest and the Bloom. He lives somewhere in the south Charlotte woods.
