New Every Morning ...

New every morning is the love our wakening and uprising prove; through sleep and darkness safely brought, restored to life and power and thought. (John Keble, 1792-1866) This lovely old hymn just came to me at breakfast this beautifully sunny morning. As so often happens, it popped into my head, a... Sign in to see full entry.

Singing with angels?

I can't quite believe it has been so long since I found myself here but there it is. It doesn't mean I haven't been at church, rather that we have gone through such a lot in the last year. My last post was in part about healing. We were not that fortunate, sadly, and my lovely sister died three days... Sign in to see full entry.

Musical messages

I missed choir practice on Thursday last week, so had no idea what the pre-service music would be. We generally get an email on Saturday evenings so that we all know; nothing came on Saturday but that doesn't matter, there is always time on the Sunday to get our music ready beforehand. Even so, it... Sign in to see full entry.

Never fear

I haven't had much time for anything other than family & house sale issues so feel this summer is more or less written off! (smile). I hoped I'd go to my 'Life Group' come this Thursday and may still manage it, but I heard on Sunday (happily) that my son is arriving from Australia on the 30th, the... Sign in to see full entry.

Peace keeping

This week our little group had to choose and share a particular Bible verse that meant something to us. Where would you even begin? As I thought about it I remembered the Christian counsellor who helped me when I was still in Australia, separated, alone and totally lost. The verse she gave me was... Sign in to see full entry.

Charting the Psalms

We are reading the Psalms each day, when time permits. I started well enough, on the first day of the new year, but it has fallen sadly by the wayside and I'm only up to the sixth one. I'm struggling just at the moment to block out the sound of high-pitched and random bursts of song from my... Sign in to see full entry.

Breathing out...

Never, ever underestimate the power of prayer. I was almost in despair earlier today, and on tenterhooks waiting for any response from the ex's solicitor. At around four thirty this afternoon I became aware that I felt very calm. When I got home and checked my inbox, my solicitor had emailed me at... Sign in to see full entry.

Trusting in God when we are in trouble is sometimes difficult. We know we can, yet find ourselves in doubt. Not in doubt that we can trust, but whether we can weather the storms while we wait for things to turn around. Look at me today.... I have been through every shade of emotion, and have been...

Our mission - should we choose to accept it...

For the first time since I've been home (since December 2007) I have missed our Advent service. As 'choir' I have been used to being reliable and being there. It clashed with a prior engagement, for which we'd bought tickets six months ago. I suppose it was (loosely) connected, as we went to see... Sign in to see full entry.

Hallowed be your name - but not at the cinema

For those of you who have not seen the recent nonsense here... certain cinema chains have decided not to show the Church of England's recent advertisement which features the Lord's Prayer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxgwWzh0h-w They don't want to 'offend' anyone. Nor do Christians. The irony is... Sign in to see full entry.
