"O death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your victory? The sting of death, is sin; and the strength of sin, is the Law. But thanks be to God Who keeps on giving us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! Therefore, my beloved brethren — be steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord! Forasmuch as you know that your labour in the Lord, is not in vain."

Early Years in England
WithaChinese-sounding namelikeLee(which howeverinCelticmeans"Hymn"!),I find it very easy to believe my life started at my conception — rather than only nine months later at my birth. Iwasconceivedin"ThreeTrees"bungalowinHelsington(beyondthetop ofGilligate just outside of Kendal). My mother was a dedicated Roman Catholic, though my father an outspokenAtheist andamateurActor (stage-namedNigel Wesley). Probably,I –FrancisNigel Lee — was sanctified from conception onward (cf. First Corinthians 7:14).
