The New Reality

My father-in-law - aged 94 - had his first jab on Saturday and is awaiting further instructions about his follow up. Everything seems to have gone smoothly, and he is relieved to have got this far without catching Covid.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2021

Our street is usually very Christmassy from 1 December onwards - we don't put up decorations till nearer to Christmas. One house opposite us still has its full array of outside lights etc. If it was left to me, I'd keep the lights up all year - I love Christmas lights! A Baptist church in Coventry h...

Praying for those in Congress right now, carrying on with business after what must have been a terrifying day.

Praying for a peaceful transition of power, and the new administration.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2021

To keep our spirits up perhaps we should follow the old tradition of keeping decorations up to Candlemas - 2nd Feb. Why not? https://www.tudorsociety.com/christmas-decorations-twelfth-night-and-candlemas/ R We didn't have time to take our tree down today, so I guess we're following the old tradition!

The patron saint of the Internet?

I think Tim Berners-Lee is generally believed to be the inventor of the World Wide Web, and thankfully he’s still with us. Alan Turing’s work provided the foundation for the discipline of computer science, and his ideas about computers contributed to the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI). ...

Regarding the Queen’s actions, the story I linked to says: Steven Gallant, who was praised for risking his life to stop the attack, has been granted the royal prerogative of mercy, an extremely rare case of absolution for a convicted murderer.

There were plans to have a short, socially distanced service at 12.00 pm while continuing with the online service at 10.00 am, but I think this may have been put off for a few weeks.

The Heart of Worship

This lovely song by Matt Redman reminds me of something I read years ago about worship. While we can think of it as a performance for the benefit of the congregation, the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard suggested that, if worship is a performance, then God is the audience of worship, the congre...
