Yesterday I spent over an hour standing in a very long slow-moving queue.  Everyone kept the mandatory two metres apart. Inevitably conversations were struck up. The distance between conversationalists meant the discourses were carried out in loud voices. In the case of one person who spotted an old friend much further down the queue that particular volume level was elevated to a thirty-minute shout. Of course, I tried not to...

Thought For Today; by David Ager.

“So that your trust may be in the Lord, I teach you today” Proverbs 22:19

Being married to a librarian, I cannot properly do other than come out in support of books and reading. From the days when book reps would hand out freebies to help secure a deal, we acquired a linen shoulder bag proudly proclaiming “Books are my Bag”. I can often be seen using it; apart from being a very convenient (and e...

“While he was still far off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion; he ran and put his arms around him and kissed him.” Luke 15:20

Hugs are off – for the time being at least. Perhaps it’s a good thing that there’s no professional sport either: in recent years celebrating success on the field or pitch by enthusiastic hugging of every team-mate in sight seems to have become almost compulsory. But any tactile gestures...

13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” 14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”

But who is he, this Jesus who poses the question, who is he ?

He is the one who existed before when or where 
the one who co-created the ent...

When Jonathan was about five or six, he woke me up really early one morning with an important question:- "Dad, how do you spell chicken?". He was not impressed by my inability to do anything without first drinking tea. And later, with his professorial manner well to the fore said that he thought my problem was that I was turning into a Granddad, while he was turning into a dad.

I mentioned that you couldn't be a dad just by gro...

Of course, you will have almost certainly recognized that the title of today’s ‘Thought’, comes from the 1963 Simon and Garfunkel hit, ‘The Sound of Silence’. The song has a Kafkaesque quality, the lyrics take us into it, yet those same lyrics stand us back from it, (“In restless dreams I walk alone”). We are familiar participants yet invited observers, drawn in by the enigmatic opening line, ‘Hello, darkness my old friend......

“When Pharaoh let the people go, God did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines, though that was nearer…God led the people by the roundabout way of the wilderness…” Exodus 13:17-18

As I set out on my bike into the country lanes the other day, to get my once-a-day permitted exercise, it seemed to me that I passed more than the usual number of people also on bikes, or walking the lanes. Sometimes it takes the suggest...

Contending For The Faith

 a series of six weekly bible studies based on the Book of Jude.

Commencing via email attachments, first episode 15th April.

1Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and a brother of James, To those who have been called, who are loved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ: 2 Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance. 3 Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we sha...

Thought For Today: Water into Wine?
One of my favourite narratives in the bible is that of Jesus turning water into wine when he attended a wedding party. Weddings and wine are two subjects close to my heart. One of the wonderful privileges of being vicar is conducting weddings. As for wine; I like to envisage the Jesus was a Maître Sommelier of divine origin, and that his demonstration of aquatic transubstantiation resulted i...

Like many keen readers I tend to download books onto a Kindle or Tablet. Even my daily reading of the bible is done online, (coffee in one hand, computer mouse in the other hand - which is why I avoid putting both hands together to pray).But, one of the things I’m enjoying, during this present suspension of normal daily routine, is reading a ‘real’ book.

Nothing quite compares to the feel of paper or the flicking over of a page...
