All Change…

18/10/09 | Posted by Poppy | Permalink | (0) Comments

I've gone back to college after a long break and it is tough right now. The change to my routine as I try and study is really hard. I thought I was good with change but apparently not and the emotional trauma of buying a new pencil case had to be seen to be believed. Why is change so hard? More ...

Meeting a Saint

30/09/09 | Posted by Poppy | Permalink | (0) Comments

This week thousands of people have made a pilgrimage to see a casket that contains the bones of a young woman who died less that 100 years ago aged 24. She didn't do anything spectacular in her life yet she was described by Pope Pius X as "the greatest saint of modern times". Can ordinary by saintly? More ...

The Hidden Gospels - Part 5: Gospel of Judas

25/09/09 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

Judas is an unusual historical figure. For the last 2000 years he has been considered the most hated man in history, yet we know almost nothing about him. Even the manner of his death is disputed. Matthew’s gospel has him die by his own hand. Acts finds him falling over in a field and bursting his intestines. Some historians even suggest that Judas never actually existed. More ...

Jesus in the NHS

12/09/09 | Posted by Poppy | Permalink | (5) Comments

I've been on holiday for a few weeks and part of my time away was spent in A & E (ER in the States) when I badly twisted my foot. Whilst I was away I missed out on all the fuss about the reforms of the American Healthcare system and the criticism of the NHS that followed but from my experience the NHS has a lot going for it when you have an accident!

It seems that a young girl was kidnapped and then appears eighteen years later and has been living in a tent in a garden with two children fathered by the alleged kidnapper. My first reaction when I heard the story was 'Lord have mercy' but it was followed very shortly by the question 'where were the neighbours?' More ...

Shouting at Nice People who Work for the Council can Damage Your Health

07/08/09 | Posted by Poppy | Permalink | (3) Comments

That isn’t the snappiest title I’ve ever come up with but I’m fed up with people being angry. I work in local government and dealing with tantrums and hissy fits is something I deal with every day. I've heard every excuse under the sun for why people are angry but it doesn't stop them having a go at yours truely. More ...

A Fitting Memorial?

20/07/09 | Posted by Poppy | Permalink | (0) Comments

Watching the news pictures of coffins being carried by soldiers with all due ceremony down the ramp of a cargo plane just back from Afghanistan made me think hard about how we remember our dead. I walk past a graveyard everyday on my way to work and there are all sorts of gravestones and flowers and ornaments. How should we remember our dead, especially when they are so young? More ...

Holding the Inner Child

30/06/09 | Posted by Poppy | Permalink | (0) Comments

I wanted to write about Michael Jackson but perhaps it is too early with reports and revelations daily. I grew up with his music. I remember the comic strip TV programme of the 1970s and later on dancing to his music at the school and college discos. I've been thinking alot about my childhood and in a quiet way mourning someone who was part of it. More ...

Did you see what happened?

30/03/09 | Posted by Poppy | Permalink | (2) Comments

I saw an accident today. As I stood waiting for my youngest to come out of school, a group of children ran past us shouting and laughing and then one of them was lying flat out on the floor and not moving. Two parents went over straight away to see if the girl was conscious and there was horrible couple of minutes when she didn’t respond. More ...

The Hidden Gospels - Part 1

26/03/09 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (3) Comments

If you had had asked anyone twenty years ago how many gospels there were, almost everyone would have given you the same reply – “four”. These days things are very different. Dan Brown’s religious conspiracy theory novel, “The DaVinci Code” opened the eyes to millions of people to the fact that there were whole bunch of gospels that they had never even heard of. Suddenly all kinds of people were claiming that there was all sorts of information about Jesus that the general public never knew existed. More ...
