Ready for eternity

Ready for eternity I was brought up in a Christian home by Christian parents who regularly went to church - and I went along to Sunday school. Here I learnt such Bible stories as Noah and the Flood, Samson and Delilah, Moses and crossing the Red Sea.

Tremendous peace

Tremendous peace On a cold and wet Tuesday afternoon, on 11 February 2003, I slowly opened my eyes to the scene of paramedics, doctors and fireman busily moving around me. My vision was hazy and my back and right leg in agony.      In my disjointed memory, I recalled being at a great height, yet…

Scents and sensibility

Scents and sensibility One of the things I love best about the Christmas holiday is the smell of it. In the weeks running up to December 25, my flat is enveloped by tantalising aromas: the pine tree and the pine-scented candles and air fresheners. As days go by, the flat is variegated with the sweet odours…

I just wrote the best song I've ever written!'  Bing Crosby introduced the song in 1942,…

God’s awesome holiness and amazing love

I have recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer and that got me thinking about the workings of God’s grace in my life. I can detect his hand in gently pushing me where he wants me to go throughout my life, even at the times when I was very distant from him. Just a few examples (there are many more). I was born in Nottingham Womens’ Hospital on the north side of the city. The family story has it that on the previous evening my father wheeled my mother from our home on the south side of the city, on his pedal cycle, across the only...

‘HD God’

'HD God' Many now have High Definition (HD) television and enjoy its quality images. Christmas reminds us that God went 'HD' 2000 years ago. The human race was privileged to see him in high definition - as Jesus, the quality image of God. When Jesus was born in Bethlehem, HD God was inaugurated: 'The Son is…
