Brunel Manor memories

I’m sure many of you are aware that Brunel Manor – host to a good few of our church weekends – has closed. In their recent newsletter, they write: We have had some requests for a memento from Brunel Manor. Rather than have people fight over a favourite painting, cushion or plant we will be creating […]

Poem – Where is God?

In this poem, the poet speaks about spiritual doubt especially when faced by negative experiences like death and other mishaps. He partially finds the answer to his question in the psalms. ‘Where is God now?’, I have been asked. ‘Where is God when his children die? Where is God when all this evil is unmasked? […]

Our thoughts are turning to Christmas. We have had one rather unusual one. We were in the Sultanate of Oman, living on the University Campus and very much enjoying life there, having been made welcome by University staff, students and the church where we worshipped regularly. The Sultan had allowed churches to be built and we went […]

Advent 13 – Philippians 4:4–9 – Peace The absence of conflict is not peace. Anything for a quiet life is not peace. Keeping quiet about wrong is not peace. Peace comes when someone speaks the truth. Peace comes when life overcomes death. Peace comes when someone lives by faith. Peace passes all understanding in this age. It […]
