Queen Accession

06/02/12 | Posted by Ian Black | Permalink | (0) Comments

Monday (6th February) is the 60th anniversary of the Queen coming to the throne. Whether you are an ardent fan of royalty or think heads of state should be elected, this is a milestone of note. She has given the best part of her life to her duties and has been thoroughly committed to it. That alone deserves a glass being raised in her honour. I don't think many of us would want to take her place for anything more than a day - though some of the houses are rather special pieces of real estate. More ...

The Jesus Silly Season

02/12/11 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (1) Comments

Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat. More tellingly however the news starts to carry a glut of bizzare, minor stories about Jesus which together combine to remind those who are only faintly aware that Christmas is kinda meant to be about Jesus.' More ...

Jesus, St Paul’s and the Protestors

02/11/11 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (1) Comments

Unless you've been orbiting around Neptune for the last two weeks, you will probably have heard that a group of protesters have set up camp around St. Paul's Cathedral and refused to leave. The last 17 days have seen, the Cathedral go back and forth as to whether or not they should close; three members of staff resign; more back and forth-ing on the question of legal action; public outcry both from those in favour and those opposed to the occupation; with still no sign as to when the protest will end.

The News of the Ancient World

15/07/11 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (5) Comments

Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The journalists, headline writers and editors are often right in what they say. So you must be careful to live as if it will be your life under the microscope on tomorrow's front page. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them. More ...

Face of Jesus or Optical Illusion?

24/04/11 | Posted by Sarah-L-B | Permalink | (2) Comments

Let's face it, road and street works are not exactly an engaging point of interest. To motorists and pedestrians alike they are an unwanted inconvenience. Frankly, if I have one more rude council worker wolf whistle at me I may actually push them into the hole they just spent three months digging. Yes, the red cone brigade really aren't everyone's favourite people. The only time road work has ever interested me was a few years ago in Wolverhampton. The rain, which had since passed, and mixed with the dug-up earth creating puddles of sludge all over the pavement. Getting onto my tiptoes and preparing to skip over the mess, I glanced downwards...

Jesus, the Pope and Anti-Semitism

10/03/11 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (3) Comments

The Pope's new book goes on sale today, part 2 of his series "Jesus of Nazareth". The first book tackled the period "From the Baptism in the Jordan to the Transfiguration" so naturally part two goes "from the Entrance into Jerusalem to the Resurrection". The work covers a number of key issues such as the meaning of Jesus' death and the evidence about his resurrection. But one aspect that has caught the headlines is Pope Benedict's declaration that it was not all of the Jewish people who were responsible for Jesus' death, but only the "Temple aristocracy" and "the followers of Barabbas".

400 Years of the King James Bible

29/01/11 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

This year marks the 400th anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible. It may not have been the first translation of the Bible into English, nor even the most accurate, but it has been the most influential and well-loved version of the Bible in the English-speaking world. More ...

Alternative Parables: #2 - Livid

28/10/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

Even as the news was still sinking in he could feel his anger fizzing its way up through his body. This was typical of his sister. Say one thing, do another. Don’t bother to think about anyone else. If something’s hard, just quit it, preferably as soon as possible. More ...

Film Review: The Social Network

16/10/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

It’s a sign of the explosive growth of Facebook that less than three years after I first heard about it, I’m sitting in a cinema watching a major movie about its creation.
The Social Network is a semi-fictional telling of how Mark Zuckerberg (in a great performance by Jesse Eisenberg) and his friends invented the world’s most popular website. More ...

The ‘Vicar of Jesus’ Comes to Britain

17/09/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (2) Comments

Much has been written about Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to the UK over the next few days. Yesterday he touched down in Edinburgh as part of a four day visit to England and Scotland which will see him also visit Glasgow, London and Birmingham. More ...
