A note from Wild Goose



This week we have a lovely new book for Lent by Sally Foster-Fulton, and two new downloads: one for Holocaust Memorial Day and the other to help celebrate Valentine's Day. And if you would like the possibility of seeing some of your own work in print, there is a call for contributions for a new book by Ruth Burgess.
