EDITORIAL DECEMBER 2016

Audio Version

Well, here we are again at the end of the year and the end of the Programme’s cycle. In this issue we have a feast of articles for you. Cracking articles, in fact, with a strong message throughout. Thank you to all who wrote in. Also, Coventry Kevin is lonesome no more in Speakers’ Corner. Great news indeed.

Now then, I am sure it won’t escape your attention that your editor has shown a complete disregard and contempt for the rules and published an obituary in SHARE. Oh dear. There may be trouble ahead, along with some music to be faced too. Not sure about the dancing, though! However, before there’s a call for P45s in the post I would just like to pay tribute to the recently departed myself, as he was widely known. I was on intimate terms with Someone Else for several years earlier in my recovery. We had grown apart in recent years but, as with other old pals of mine, our paths would cross from time to time and we would catch up on old times.  The only time Someone Else and I fell out (major resentment on my part, just so you know) was when it was suggested that I started to put something back in to the Fellowship.  It was sound advice and whilst I saw much less of Someone Else after this, I did find that I started to grow spiritually quickly. I owe a great deal to Someone Else for this advice and for that reason I have taken the decision to publish his obituary.

Finally, on behalf of the SHARE team, may I take the opportunity to wish our readers all the compliments of the season and thank you all for your continued support and readership over the last year.
