Hosts

I wonder what comes to mind for you if I say the word “hosts”. Perhaps you think of Ant and Dec, hosts of “Britain’s Got Talent.” or Gary Linekar and Des Lynam, hosts in different eras of “Match of the Day.” You might be thinking of a party or meal you’ve been to recently, and […]

God is There

God is there. God is here. God is everywhere. God is present. This is one of the basic Christian assertions. It is a belief that God exists, but it is more than that. It is an understanding that God exists and is present in and to creation. We do not believe in a God who […]

Hold on. Let go.

I wonder if you’ve ever had that deeply frustrating experience of calling after someone who just keeps walking away from you as you call. Or a pet. Have you ever had a cat that just ignored you, or even worse, seemed to take you calling as a sign to disappear even further into the bushes? […]

Mind

Who can tell me what Gillette’s strapline is? “The best a man can get”. Traditionally this has led to TV adverts with male sports stars, shaving with the latest incarnation of Gillette’s products, implying that this is what it means to be the best – handsome, popular, good at sports, driving off in a nice […]

How much?

Little Nutbrown Hare, who was going to bed, held on tight to Big Nightbrown Hare’s very long ears. He wanted to be sure that Big Nutbrown Hare was listening. Guess how much I love you” he said… … Big Nutbrown Hare settled Little Nutbrown Hare into his bed of leaves. He leaned over and kissed […]

The One and Only

“I am the one and only” sang Chesney Hawkes in 1991, to great chart success. Sadly for him, it was, pretty much, his one and only hit. According to Collins dictionary, the phrase “The one and only can be used in front of the name of an actor, singer, or other famous person when they […]

Sovereign

I wonder if you like doing puzzles. In our family the Radio Times Christmas crossword is an annual tradition. There’s a bit of competition to see which household can complete it first. Last Christmas Liz and I were very pleased that we’d completed it before my mum and dad came to lunch on Christmas Day, […]

Well, well, well

Is it just me, or does tonight feels a bit like the season finale of a television series. If I’ve counted back correctly, we’re just coming to the end of the fourth season of “The People Of God”. Season 1 was broadcast in the Autumn of 2016 and shared the stories of Adam and Eve, […]

After you…

I’m approaching the time of life at which I’m starting to think that before long I am likely to have to start wearing glasses, especially if I want to be able to keep reading without holding everything at arms length. I wonder how I’m going to feel about that. For those of you who have […]

Lucozade and God

I wonder how many of you have seen this advertisement for the sports drink Lucozade. I first saw it a couple of weeks ago on the bill board on the station car park. I wonder how it makes you feel, what you think about this Biblical account being subverted and used to sell fizzy sugar […]
