Flood of biblical proportions averted

But first, a thought for the day. On my favourite radio religious programme TWR an Irish pastor was speaking about his work and told us of one of the most effective prayers he had ever heard 'Lord, make me a link in the chain of thy purpose'.  In other words we should not see ourselves as needing to be in the public eye or loved or be a key part of anything but as part of a chain where we are...

List of groups that are a casualty of Facebook

Reflections on midsummer’s day

We had a full house at Glastonbury, Chalice Well. For the first time it was uncomfortably crowded. The cakes ran out and who wants to stand in a long queue. Mind you, everyone talks to each other and you could not have asked for a more pleasant day. To my relief, very few of the women wear make-up which makes the real person easier to see. Why do women plaster make up on their faces. Back to...
