Not a believer? Perhaps give this post a miss? Hold on! Might you be missing out on life’s best open secret?
We’ve been studying Hebrews in our Home Group at church. It’s not easy to understand. But it’s richly rewarding. And it’s got lots to say to us in our bizarre 21st century world. Especially in tough times.
Did you read my previous, Valentine’s Day post? Hope you enjoy this further light-hearted interlude from my usual heavy topics…
Being a Grandparent is a privilege, a source of endless fun, and a way to stay young. Our son and daughter-in-law say they admire our energy. BUT, unlike us, they can’t go home to collapse once the half term break comes to an end!
This year I felt overcome with gratitude towards the lady who has shared my life since 1975. In an age where many feel marriage is too difficult to be a realistic proposition, I wanted to express my own feelings towards Jane.
The man in the street has as much idea what Advent’s about, as he does Trinity Sunday. Zilch. So, imagine my surprise when a council administrator wished me a happy Advent at the end of an email exchange.

Or, were they destined for the timber skip? Find out by reading this post, especially if YOU feel you’re of no further use!
Do you have neighbour problems? I’m struck by how many people do, and I know how unsettling it can be when you don’t feel at peace in your own home.
So, I chose this as the backdrop for a booklet that I’ve just had published. Meet Harry, who believes he has a neighbour from hell. He’s in for a surprise or two!
Grandchildren can be such fun! They may be tiring to entertain, but it’s so worthwhile. As you help them understand the world, they draw you into a different way of seeing it yourself. And oh! how you have to laugh at yourself!
Blisters can ruin your walking holiday. Fortunately, on our adventure in France, we were marvellously supported by our fellow travellers (or pilgrims). The blessings we received, and hopefully gave, greatly enriched our holiday.
A fortnight walking in France has provided a lovely, although physically strenuous, holiday. But it’s also challenged me to embrace a different sort of activism that springs from stillness, from spending time with God.
