There’s always one child … (IP)

‘So, why not? … let’s give it a shot …’ – “ New Rule for Campers ”

Living between the two appearings

Continuing the idea of one of my old hymns on Sundays : With one eye looking back to when the grace of God appeared, and one eye looking on to where all history is steered, we navigate our path through ‘now’, while treasured, guided here below …

Valued Escapes (IP)

… and finance applied for things like a ‘sitting service’ supplied for people like us – to shop, take a quiet lunch break, get out in the wilds alone with your husband … four hours, or more, for sanity’s sake …

Posted on Wed, 07 Jan 2015

This reminded me of when my son was being taught about the 'rules of composition' for music, and I worried he would lose what seemed to be spontaneous and individual intuition for what would make interesting sound. He assured me it wouldn't, but...

Trying to see where you're coming from in this, PT. It's because of the suffering, death, sin, that God is doing something. I know we would like him to sort it all out at ths moment,  but just like the prophecies concerning his first...

Stephen, I don't manage to

Posted on Thu, 11 Dec 2014

Stephen, I don't manage to dip much into the prose section, and horror and surreal isn't really my scene – I didn't even like 'Alice in Wonderland' as a child! However I did find reading this intriguing for the well-structured brevity, and the...

I did read this when you first put it up, and wasn't surprised to read of these activities in prison and the abilities being better used and appreciated, but I couldn't think of any comment! Reading again, I was struck by one of your comments...
