Guitar Praise


I think I will stick to GH Van Halen…

[Edit:  As I am blogging this my wife just said “Is that really real??!!”  I think it probably is.]

The Election

It would seem that we are in the run up to a general election here in the UK.  Not officially – but everyone is acting like it anyway.  So here are my thoughts on the subject as a Christian.

a)  Make sure you use your vote.  Don’t sit this one out!

b)  Pray about it.

b)  Ask yourself the question – who would Jesus vote for?


Say One For Me Vicar

One of the things that is often shouted at you in the street whilst wearing a dog collar is “say one for me vicar”.  Our diocese in Wakefield has jumped on this idea for lent and is offering an opportunity for people who don’t attend church to have their prayers offered at the intercessions.

If you would like your prayers to be included you can have them said at morning prayer at the Wakefield Cathedral by emailing sayoneformevicar@wakefield.anglican.org.  Alternatively, I will pray your prayers with the others at morning prayer if you post them here or tweet them to me.

Lets bring everyone to God in prayer.

Rowan Williams on Fresh Expressions

It would seem that since the General Synod of the Church of England, Fresh Expressions have been given much more prominence.  Jonny Baker has pointed to a podcast by Nomad, a missional community in Nottingham.  They have managed to get together a podcast interview with the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.  Now – the things he says are not particularly new if you have had your ear to the ground and been listening to the sound of the FE horses coming from afar.  However, he coherently puts a lot of the ongoing conversation into an easily digestible and ‘Anglican friendly’ package.

Please give it a listen.
