Walking On Water (not much good to me!)

“Lord if it is you” cries the disciple “Bid me come to you walking on the water” And he starts to walk on the water, he starts to come to Jesus, but when he sees the wind, he is afraid and begins to sink” This Gospel reading is no good to me I’m afraid. Jesus…

Squabbling Children

Am I the only parent here who can remember, all too well, having to listen to children squabbling in the garden with their friends and instead of playing happily they were standing glaring at each other, saying, what sounded like yer, yer, yer, we’re bored, with one adding no one wants to play the game…

A “However” Sort of Person?

It is Good to Doubt

I couldn’t believe it. I had just got back from the school on Tuesday and the radio was saying that Theresa May had said she was going to make a news statement in Downing Street in fifteen minutes. The BBC were obviously surprised, they had no idea what it could be about. I thought to…

Face to Face with the Risen Lord

On the 4th August 1967 I went for the first time to watch Sussex play cricket at Hove and I have been going every year since then, so this year is my 50th anniversary! I can see you are impressed! I remember that first day so vividly. My neighbour from across the road – Old…
