I’m pleased to say that I have arrived safely at the Lambeth Conference. I will do a proper update later on this afternoon on the Church Times blog, which is where I will be keeping my main Lambeth Diary. Irritatingly I’ve been having various computer problems, hence the lack of updates so far.
I couldn’t resist one picture though – this is my special ‘cartoonist in residence’ tent, which I will be resident in from tomorrow. The big blue tent in the background is the tent for bishops. Theirs is bigger, but then there are more of them.

I’m pleased to announce that ‘My Pew: Things I have seen from it’ is now available.
The book contains 90 cartoons, nearly all of which are from my Church Times ‘Guide to the Church’ series. There is also a cartoon introduction, which takes the total up to 91. It has taken over a year and a half to do these drawings (not full time – I have had breaks for meals and to do household chores etc). They represent many days of anxiety and pacing to and fro, but also hours of fun thinking up the ideas and talking them over with friends and passers-by. Not to mention many Cartoon Blog threads on which you, the readers, have given your ideas, for which I am genuinely grateful.
The book costs £5.99. Canterbury Press are once again the publishers. Their page about the book is here.
You can also buy the book from all manner of places. Church House bookshop has it here, or if you prefer do a search on Amazon.
Alternatively why not support a local bookseller and buy the book from there? Some Christian bookshops will have it – if in doubt phone them and ask. You can find the number in the Christian bookshops directory. If they do not believe that there is such a book tell them that the ISBN number is 9781853118999. They should be able to order it for you. Other bookshops will stock it too, but once again you might have to order it.

…and look what is in it. More details later.
[By the way - I am aware that my blog page does not work well for Internet Explorer users with small screens - the image and all the blog content drops right down to the bottom of the page. This is more likely to happen if I use 500 pixel wide images from Flickr like this one rather than the 400 pixel wide ones I usually stick to for this very reason.
If any CSS wizard can advise me what I can do to stop this happening I would be incredibly grateful. I have spent three years trying to work this out (not continually) and have been unsuccessful thus far]
Update: How does that look to everyone? [Technical aside: I have used overflow: hidden] If nothing looks out of the ordinary that is a good thing.
