Missing 3 yr old

Indeed. Many people will be affected and heartsick.
A body has been found but the identity has not yet been confirmed.
The mother has been taken in but they're not yet saying why.

women covering heads?

Thanks, Pam. That is spot-on ! To be fair to the old boy, 'dismissive' was how I took the vicar's explanation when I was a typical teenager who thought I knew better than my elders. I should have used inverted commas in my post. You're right : he was properly explaining differences. At the time I wa...

women covering heads?

When I was a teenager who didn't even have RS A-level at the time, the vicar told me to beware of taking Paul too seriously, because 'that's not gospel.' Of course, being a good thirty years younger and therefore knowing more, :) I was horrified at such dismissiveness and decided I was going to cont...

Welcome to our Advent book group forum!

It's good that we kick off with the explanation of a poem by someone so erudite and emminent. Mrs Morley certainly hits the ground running. We are reminded that although Advent is a time of waiting and anticipation, in our hemisphere it's in darkness and discomfort that we look forward to a time of ...

I agree with what Jae and Pam have said.Also with Ernest who has posted since I started this. I don't know whether a reflection I'm having lately will help too but I'll tell it just in case. Some recent things have been making me ponder over a long-ago experience. I once felt very lonely when I was ...

Thanks for the video, Joan. I loved it ! For a few seconds I actually could smell the glue and the glitter. I'd never seen it before. It's more true to life than anyone without a long memory would believe . :) I bet the cast and crew thoroughly enjoyed making it. I expect things would be a bit diffe...

Baptism or Christening?

Richard, that is spot-on ! It sums up very well the Anglican doctrine as I've always been taught it. Infant baptism is about the adults who take the vows, not the water poured on the baby. Having said them aloud before God and other human beings in this ceremonial fashion, we are likely to think abo...
