Jesus – the Gemini personality

22/05/09 | Posted by Steve Hollinghurst | Permalink | (0) Comments

There are certain people who have the ‘gift of the gab’; they may be at turns funny and witty or they can tie you up in knots in a debate. Such people demonstrate the Gemini Personality. Yet on other occasions ‘two faced’ might be how they are described. How might Jesus demonstrate this personality type and help those who posses it to avoid the negative traits and deepen the positive? More ...

Film Review: Angels and Demons

15/05/09 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (1) Comments

Having banished his sacrilegious haircut and dumped Jesus' great great great granddaughter, Tom Hanks returns to our screens as academic turned action figure Robert Langdon. Dan Brown wrote "The Da Vinci Code" after he had already scored a hit with "Angels and Demons", but Sony and director Ron Howard presumably thought that the latter story would make the more popular film. Having established The Da Vinci Code as a hit movie, Howard and co. have taken note of the audience for Brown's religious thrillers and moved swiftly onto Angels and Demons. More ...

13/05/09 | Posted by ellen | Permalink | (1) Comments

Jesus and Martin Luther King Jr. meet up in Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. They sit in a pew together - third from the front on the left. They talk about what it feels like for the USA to have a black man in the white house, the importance of hope and the power of dreams. More ...

Playing the System

12/05/09 | Posted by Poppy | Permalink | (1) Comments

I've realised I've been doing it all wrong. I spent ages last Janaury surfing the net and then trudging around the sales looking for a new fridge. What I should have done is gone into politics as a career, and the claimed the money for my new fridge on expenses. I could have got a nice shiney new one rather than one with a dent in the side that was going cheap! More ...

Film Review: Wolverine

30/04/09 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (1) Comments

Wolverine was always the most interesting and engaging character in the highly successful X-men trilogy. Somehow Hugh Jackman managed to offset Logan's physical toughness with suggestions of a hurtful past and a deep disappointment of the world around him. It's not a huge surprise, then, that his is the first character to be given a prequel film of his own as part of the new X-men Origins series. More ...

Will there be a flu pandemic?

29/04/09 | Posted by Poppy | Permalink | (2) Comments

So will swine flu lead to a pandemic with millions dead just like the 1918 Spanish flu or will it be just another health scare? No one seems to know. I have to admit I'm worried as I remember watching 'Survivors' on the TV when I was younger where a group of people stuggle in a post pandemic world. It is worrying. Is this the end of civilisation as we know it? More ...

The Hidden Gospels - Part 2: Gospel of Mary

20/04/09 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (6) Comments

If a gospel is all about good news then it appears that the Gospel of Mary is barely a gospel at all. There’s no sacrificial death, in fact, there are not even any ideas on how to make the world a better place, at least, not in the parts of the book we have. More ...

Jesus – the Taurus personality

20/04/09 | Posted by Steve Hollinghurst | Permalink | (13) Comments

Traditionally the symbol of St Luke’s Gospel is a bull or ox, and here very much not the ‘bull in a china shop’ but the strong dependable but sometimes immovable creature that is the mainstay of agricultural work in many parts of the world. Those we might call the strong and silent type are in mind here, but how might they reflect Jesus character and what lessons might Jesus have for such people? More ...

What Lies Beneath?

18/04/09 | Posted by Poppy | Permalink | (2) Comments

This week I watched a programme on BBC1 about the hidden code that explains all that deep hidden meaning in the Narnia books by CS Lewis. As ‘The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe’ was the first book I ever bought, for 2/6 back in the early 1960s, and I was a member of the CS Lewis society back in the 1980s, I was ready to scoff, but there may be something in it.

Jesus – the Aries personality

14/04/09 | Posted by Steve Hollinghurst | Permalink | (26) Comments

A couple of years ago an Easter poster portrayed Jesus, copying the classic image, as Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara with the tag line ‘meek and mild - as if’ (see it here). It caused some controversy. Yet the one who told people to ‘turn the other cheek’ was not a push over, he had the traits of the Aries personality often associated with the ‘warrior-leader’. He also points towards how such people can ensure those traits do not descend into mindless violence. More ...
