Andy B is a champion multi-tasker. When you look after children, or the home, it’s just something you become quite good at! You also get very good at it, when operating a lorry mounted crane with 7 controls – and you’re using 5 of them at the same time – and while offloading an abnormally large item, with pedestrians who seem to be rushing to their own end, and ignoring any number of safety warnings, barriers and people you’ve put in place to keep them away from what you’re doing! That one might just have been more specifically a regular situation Andy B encountered as a truck driver – it may not something you’re likely to encounter when you’re popping to the shops! But, that multi-tasking skill is something we’ve all learned to do during Covid. In a family situation it can be a really useful skill to learn. But, in the workplace, it becomes less so.

It has taken many loved ones from their family, way ahead of time, and it has created an abundance of fear.

In his first video of Series 4, this is more of a special Edition Andy B video! With all that has been happening recently, Andy B has been finding sleep rather elusive! Afghanistan; vaccination passports; President Biden; forced covid vaccinations for under 12s in Finland; global temperature fluctuations being used for political control and financial gain; China and Taiwan; a forced Home Education register in the UK – there is much to see around us that can easily cause us anxiety and worry. But, as Christians what is God calling us to do?

Lockdown craziness has affected us all. Truly, the world will never be the same again! I’ve seen churches face the challenge head on, and do the very best they can to continue to build God’s Kingdom where they are. They delivered food, supported local charities – even setting up new ones, knocked on doors to check on the vulnerable, set up telephone chains for support, posted DVDs, cassette tapes and CDs of services to people with no digital access.

Due to necessity, we were forced to get creative - and make our own advent calendars. And we're pretty chuffed with them.
