Where do I find the answers?

This month I have resisted the urge to write anything about the loss of our late Queen because so many have been doing that recently, and with much greater skill.  I also decided against writing about the economic and governmental woes we are facing. Again, I’m not really qualified to comment with authority.  However, thereContinue reading “Where do I find the answers?”

How does the Lambeth Conference affect me?

In my previous Blog Post, I wondered aloud what I should write about this month.  Since my last Blog, apart from a few minor stories, there has only been one hot-button issue to reflect on, from where I’m sitting.  You on the other hand may say, well, what about … this, or … that issue. Continue reading “How does the Lambeth Conference affect me?”

Reflecting on my Pride

(Just like last month, as a bit of fun, look out for the hidden rock/pop song titles!) When I released my last blog, it was mere hours before a Pride March – my first “Pride” March (though not my first march), and since then I’ve been to a second.  So, what were the experiences like? Continue reading “Reflecting on my Pride”

Pride (In The Name Of Love)

Every June we celebrate Pride Month, although each of us will view and celebrate it slightly differently.  Some will look forward with a growing excitement or anticipation and others will have done it so many times before, it’s just become a part of life.  Many will just see it as a welcome mix of coloursContinue reading “Pride (In The Name Of Love)”

Now, how does that work?

The reason for that image will become clearer at the end of the blog, but for this piece, we need to go back to the beginning!  Over the months, I’ve tackled a range of issues.  This month I want to go back to something I was struggling with when I first began writing my essayContinue reading “Now, how does that work?”

My Story – Jane: “The most unlikely people… Sarah, Lawrence and Esther”

This month I return to what has become an occasional series. In earlier months we have heard Don and Sarah tell their stories and this month we hear from Jane. She writes: I didn’t really come from a Christian home.  I did come from an overcrowded home – five children in a two-up -two-down houseContinue reading “My Story – Jane: “The most unlikely people… Sarah, Lawrence and Esther””

Our Troubled World

Today I thought I’d take a step back and have a wider view at the very troubled world we live in.  Frequently our attention is on our community, our church, our town, and our nation, and how we, personally, are affected by what is happening there.  Will I be disturbed by whatever changes are afoot?Continue reading “Our Troubled World”

“Safe and secure in the arms of the Lord?”

As I sat down to write this, I was uncertain where I ought to focus my thoughts.  Should be something to do with the ongoing terrible news of Russia invading Ukraine – no, by the time this gets published the world might look very different.  Besides, there are more than enough other folks writing muchContinue reading ““Safe and secure in the arms of the Lord?””

Imago Dei

Way back, before I was born, before any of us were born, back before the Romans, before Moses, before Noah, there was a garden.  Whether this garden was literal or figurative doesn’t matter.  Within this garden, God created the first people.  We are told that these people were made in the image of God, meaningContinue reading “Imago Dei”

New Birth – An Invitation

I will get back to folk telling their stories and experiences in due course, but in the meantime, we are within touching distance of Christmas Day, and my mind was drawn to that story of the first Christmas and who saw the infant Christ first.  Some folk were in the right place at the rightContinue reading “New Birth – An Invitation”
