The Soapbox Approach

20/03/11 | Posted by Sarah-L-B | Permalink | (5) Comments

Walking down a busy street in the middle of town, there are various people I expect to see. The buskers with their guitars, the charity workers with their collection boxes, the guys advertising pizza with their 6-foot signs and of course the Big Issue sellers. It's fair to say that - on an average day - these people do not come as a surprise to us. Of course, every now and then, we see a new face on the street. More ...

Fostering Concern Over Court Battles

04/03/11 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

Jesus didn’t really tend to give advice. For all his perceived "love your enemy" cuddly hippy-ness, he generally told people what to do rather than just make suggestions. So it can make it quite hard to know what to do with the odd passage we come across in the gospels where Jesus does seem to be offering advice. One such verse has been on my mind recently - Matthew 5:25. More ...

Life in the Spectrum

It was our autistic son’s seventh birthday this week and it got me reflecting on how he has developed since his diagnosis five years ago. I can still remember clearly the first time he properly acknowledged me. More ...

Obama and Jesus

06/02/11 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (1) Comments

It’s been a strangely religious week for President Obama. The man who many on the left thought would be the USA’s messiah has found himself beset with problems, not least that an astonishing 20% of Americans believe he is a Muslim despite his various claims to the contrary. More ...

Prayer? It’s a Good Natter!

05/02/11 | Posted by Sarah-L-B | Permalink | (3) Comments

Having brewed the tea and unwrapped the chocolate, my friends and I put our feet up on the sofa for the evening. For us, this has always been the perfect way to begin a good, long conversation. And hey, we all love a good natter, right? More ...

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 ...

Good News!

Last week was a week of good news with the sucessful rescue of 33 men from a mine in Chile. It was a nail biting time, but all the men arrived safely on the surface and the whole world seemed to join in with the celebrations of the Chilean people. But why don't we here more good news? 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 ...
