a.m.: Hosea 1,2,3 p.m.: Romans 5:5-11

I must admit, when the preacher posed the question, “Who is Gomer?” I had to think for a bit before turning to the minor prophets. It can be far too easy to take God’s salvation through his Son too lightly. … Continue reading

Lydia

I’m not sure if I should eat full English breakfasts before playing football! I did spend most of the afternoon burping and generally holding back on sudden movements! I think this afternoon was the first time I’d played with the … Continue reading

a.m.: Mark 9:33-37 p.m.: Romans 5:3-5

As the Jesus and his disciples travelled to Capernaum, Mark paints us an interesting picture of the disciples bickering as they followed their Master. No doubt, Jesus was in front, and like children, the disciples are jostling for the best … Continue reading

An irregular regular day

No football today as four people were otherwise engaged. Gave me plenty of opportunity to do chores around the house. I managed to do two loads of washing, clean the bathroom, vacuum and file lots of papers. I even managed … Continue reading

All the world’s a stage

I think my knee is almost back to normal now! This evening I managed to run around the football pitch for the usual time rather than hobbling. We won and I even managed to score a few goals. The rest … Continue reading

a.m.: Mark 9:14-29 p.m.: Romans 5

As Jesus came down from the mountain and approached the rest of the disciples, he was confronted with unbelief of differing degrees. Firstly there were the teachers of the Law who didn’t believe Jesus was the Messiah, and opposed him … Continue reading

She ate the whole jar

Seeing as there was no youth club to run this week, I thought I’d take advantage of my free Friday evening to go and visit my parents and my sister. It was good to see everyone again, albeit briefly! I … Continue reading

In the beginning was the Word

I appear to be waving my church history flag again… There was a (surprisingly) good documentary on Channel Four on Bank Holiday Monday evening called The Bible Revolution about the origins of the first translations of the Bible into English. … Continue reading

First out, but usual outcome…

A few of the usual suspects came round this evening for a game of Risk and a DVD. Tim/Deanna and I had all our troops massed in Australasia, and only one of us would be left standing. Alas, the dice … Continue reading

Dancing with Brahms

Started learning Brahms’ Hungarian Dance no. 1 yesterday evening. Currently playing it a lot slower than it should be. If I ever get the hang of this one, it’ll be cool! I’m slowly acquiring some party pieces! 🙂

Ahhhhh!

Easter bank holiday Monday! No work, and no usual routine! Thorpe Park here we come! A small band of us (20 I think) descended on this theme park, to enjoy the sunshine, the rides and each other’s company. I’m not … Continue reading

a.m.: Luke 24:13-35 p.m.: 2 Timothy 2:8

As two of Jesus’ followers walked to Emmaus after the Passover, there was an air of disappointment among them. Their messiah had been crucified and as far as they could tell, it was over. They found it incredible that the … Continue reading

A nice lazy Saturday, after the craziness of last Saturday! After a short lie-in and a fat-loaded breakfast of bacon and eggs, it was off for a game of footie in the park with some of the lads from church … Continue reading
