Manchester 


In the wake of the atrocious attack in Manchester last night, I feel have to say something. But like so many people today there are simply not enough words to express just how sad,  shocked, upset, fearful, determined, defiant and united we feel as a city. Mancunians are renowned for our understated attitude to getting... Continue Reading →

Daybook Entry 22nd May 2017


For Today... 22nd May 2017 Outside my window... the evening is cooling down a little. Some clouds in the sky but some bright sunshine too. A great metaphor for life!

Funeral Ministry

Daybook Entry – 5th March 2017


For Today 5th March. I am following a Lent Challenge from the Bible Society, which doesn't have a prompt for Sundays (Sundays are not counted part of Lent) and so I'm doing a Daybook entry instead. Looking out my window... it has been one of those “is it Spring or still Winter?” days today I... Continue Reading →

Follow


Lent Challenge – “Follow” Is there a difference between being a follower or a fan? Do you follow anything? Or anyone? Most of us do. We follow football teams or sports generally; we follow celebrities and quite a lot of us follow a religion. But what does it mean to follow someone? It’s easy when... Continue Reading →
