** In this series of seven 'Abbey Fridays' we are looking at a unique little cameo set within the oft-ignored book of Revelation. Towards the beginning of this last book of the Bible there is a series of seven letters in which the Apostle John has a vision of Jesus addressing the churches of Asia Minor – present day Turkey. Each letter addresses a different concern and yet the content of each is 'bang up-to-date' and is entirely apposite to 21st century people, churches and cultures..
