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 ...

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 ...

Film Review: Year One

27/06/09 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (1) Comments

With his beard and his stout figure Jack Black has often seemed a littel prehistoric compared to his liposuctionned, bodywaxed, Hollywood cohorts. So it was perhaps only a matter of time until someone offered him a role playing a caveman. Black plays the role of Zed alongside Michael Cerra's Oh in Year One, the latest film from producer Judd Apatow (Superbad, Knocked Up, Anchorman) and writer / director Harold Ramis (Analyze This, Groundhog Day).

Jesus and Martin Luther King Jr. meet up in Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. They sit in a pew together - third from the front on the left. They talk about what it feels like for the USA to have a black man in the white house, the importance of hope and the power of dreams. More ...

Playing the System

I've realised I've been doing it all wrong. I spent ages last Janaury surfing the net and then trudging around the sales looking for a new fridge. What I should have done is gone into politics as a career, and the claimed the money for my new fridge on expenses. I could have got a nice shiney new one rather than one with a dent in the side that was going cheap! More ...

Film Review: Wolverine

30/04/09 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (1) Comments

Wolverine was always the most interesting and engaging character in the highly successful X-men trilogy. Somehow Hugh Jackman managed to offset Logan's physical toughness with suggestions of a hurtful past and a deep disappointment of the world around him. It's not a huge surprise, then, that his is the first character to be given a prequel film of his own as part of the new X-men Origins series. More ...

What Lies Beneath?

This week I watched a programme on BBC1 about the hidden code that explains all that deep hidden meaning in the Narnia books by CS Lewis. As ‘The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe’ was the first book I ever bought, for 2/6 back in the early 1960s, and I was a member of the CS Lewis society back in the 1980s, I was ready to scoff, but there may be something in it.

He’s Alive!

The first person to meet Jesus that first Easter morning was Mary…the tomb, which had been guarded by Roman soldiers, was empty and she was heartbroken – who had taken Jesus? Where was he? But then there he was. She had thought he was the gardener but then she realised it really was Jesus, standing there in front of her. Jesus is Alive! More ...

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 ...

This is compassion

10/04/09 | Posted by Vicky | Permalink | (2) Comments

It's nearly two o'clock in the morning, and I'm struggling to keep my eyelids open. I'm awake for a reason. On this night Christians remember something that happened in the small hours just before Jesus' arrest. Before the soldiers came to get him, Jesus went out to an olive garden on the edge of the city, a garden known as Gethsemane. Knowing what was about to happen, and getting very agitated, he said to his friends, "I'm hurting to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me." More ...
