Independance Day

Today, my eldest daughter and son in law celebrate their fifteen wedding anniversary. They got married just before I applied for the chaplaincy job in Geneva, which took us out of the UK for nine years and widened our world considerably. It seems to have turned us all into a family of globetrotters, with Rachel and John now dividing their time between the Rockies and the Caribbean, with Kath and Anto thinking about moving to Spain next year, and Owain expecting to end up somewhere in Europe eventually.

Today BBC reporter Alan Johnson was released from his kidnappers. A moment of great triumph for the international community of journalists. We haven't had joy like this since Terry Waite was released.
