a.m.: Mark 3:22-30 p.m.: Joshua 9

It’s Slough

Friday night was spent surrounded by teenagers at the Slough Ice Arena. I must admit, I’m beginning to feel my age as everyone rushed along around me, leaving me to trundle along in their wake. I think I’m actually getting … Continue reading

Happy birthday Marjorie!

A fine Saturday sitting around doing nothing during the day. A very nice way to recover from a rather hectic week. The day was completed with an evening celebrating Mim’s birthday at a little Italian restaurant, The Amalfi, in Windsor. … Continue reading

Long blues

Played Ed at snooker again yesterday evening. 5-3 frames to me in the end. Whilst the first few frames were atrocious – I put it down to having a new tip on my cue, I improved along the way to … Continue reading

a.m.: Ecclesiastes 9:13-18 p.m.: Joshua 8:1-19

A definite feeling of deja vu this evening. I’ve spent most of the past few Friday evenings explaining that justification before God is by faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone. Imagine my dismay when I touched on the ten commandments … Continue reading
