Doctor Who and Jesus - 3 - Too young to be a time lord

08/01/09 | Posted by Andrew Wooding | Permalink | (4) Comments

You have to admit, it’s been a momentous few weeks for Doctor Who fans. First, David Tennant announced he was going to step down from the role after filming four specials in early 2009. This announcement was followed by the 2008 Christmas special, featuring guest actor David Morrissey. Would Morrissey be ‘The Next Doctor’ – David Tennant’s successor – or was the episode’s title just a red herring? It turned out the latter was true. Finally, just three days into the new year, the real ‘next Doctor’ was announced: a virtual unknown called Matt Smith, the youngest actor ever to take on the part of the Doctor. Which begs the question, at just 26 years old, is he too young to be our favourite time lord? More ...

Love covers over a multitude of sins

I bought a new top the other day - it is white, made of linen, long and floaty. I like it. I wore it out for lunch with my mother, who said to me: 'Ellen - you look lovely, that top covers a multitude of sins'. More ...

As someone who nearly gave birth to a baby on the motorway I’ve had a real affinity with Mary. It makes a good story later, as both mother and baby are fine, but at the time it wasn’t funny. More ...

Where should church be?

This week the Arch Bishop of Canterbury visited a Cardiff Pub - not unusual perhaps, after all why shouldn't the head of the Church of England enjoy a pint like the rest of us - but, he wasn't there just for the beer, he had been asked by the pub church Solace at Edwards on St Mary Street, Cardiff to answer the question: “Can God mend broken Britain?” More ...

This is my first post and a bit of a journey into cyber space. For someone who is a confident computer user you would not believe how hard it is to be faced with a new version of the software. None of my buttons are in the right place and if I push the wrong one I'm scared I'll take the site down. More ...

The Six Secrets of Santa

13/12/08 | Posted by feihero | Permalink | (2) Comments

Draw a Father Christmas. Right now. In your mind at the very least. Was he fat? White? Old? Why? There are a lot of images which we see so often, that it's easy to forget we've created them. Or chosen them at least. And we may never stop to question why we've chosen to make them look this particular way. But when a psychologist says - "Draw a... house" - you might be shocked to learn how much more your drawing says about you, than it does about any house you've ever lived in. And the bloke you draw trying to squeeze down the chimney has got even more surprises in his sack. Secrets in fact. And not his secrets – ours! So what does Santa say about the things we really want (not just) for Christmas? More ...

Jack Black as Jesus

09/12/08 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (9) Comments

School of Rock star Jack Black has appeared playing Jesus in an internet film. Prop 8 - The Musical was written by Marc Shaiman (Hairspray) as a protest against a new piece of Californian legislation limiting gay rights. Black appears to a bunch of evangelical Christians (played by John C. Reilly and West Wing's Allison Janney) and points out that they seem to pick and choose which parts of the Bible they follow. Jesus goes on to suggest that they should pick the bits that talk about love and not those that are about hate.The film gained an incredible 1.2 million hits in its first day, and reached the 2.5 million mark within just 5 days.

Not even Christians believe in the virgin birth

08/12/08 | Posted by Ralph | Permalink | (14) Comments

Last year a piece of research showed that the UK as a nation is a little confused about the details of the story behind Christmas. This year we’re not even sure we believe it. ‘What’s the problem’ you ask? Well, I’m wondering how someone can call himself or herself a Christian and not believe the basics. Even more than that I’m wondering what you think. More ...
