Saturday Blues

11/04/09 | Posted by ellen | Permalink | (0) Comments

When my Dad died a few years ago the time immediately after his death was really difficult. He had been ill for only a month and much of that time was spent looking after him and my mother – making sure they were ok, cooking meals, dealing with visitors and other domestic duties. The day after he died I was left in a void. I had an almost overwhelming sense of loss. I didn’t know what to do with myself.
This is what the disciples must have felt the day after Jesus died. He was gone. Everything they had lived for had gone. What was their life going to be like now? More ...

If Jesus were alive today in one of the UK’s inner cities where would he be? Somehow I can’t see him as a city banker with a big bonus and a flash car. Perhaps he might be working with the poor.

Road Rage

17/11/08 | Posted by ellen | Permalink | (1) Comments

I have spent most of my driving life holding in emotions, trying to be patient, attempting to drive responsibly and avoiding making obscene gestures at my fellow 'travellers of the road'. Some of us are naturally calm and collected drivers, some of us lack discipline and need to be reminded of our vulnerability. That said, I am, so they tell me, a good driver and I have only had one minor prang (last Christmas I dented my mums car by driving very slowly into the back of a BMW - no damage done to the BMW!). But I have been feeling more vulnerable lately and I felt I wanted to move more gently around the world. As a result I have been trying out driving as if I was on my test - doing all the right things, right moves, right speed etc. More ...
